A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....1-02-07....Military Monday on Tuesday
Billie, The Mayor

Posted on 01/01/2007 6:37:29 PM PST by The Mayor




A Few of FR's Finest
....Every Day
FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues; salute and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which we can express ourselves.
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.






A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I could no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I had been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.
Still that didn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why we've created a place for just that. This is a friendly room in JimRob's house where FReeper FRiends can gather every day and just say hello if that's all they want to do.
There's more of course. We sometimes feature different FReepers, with a little background information on who they are and what makes them who they are, along with a few photos you might not have seen on other threads; sometimes others write an essay for us to post as the feature for the day; sometimes our presentation is a human interest story found elsewhere that you might not have read; sometimes special holiday threads; but whatever the topic of the day, it is always with FR's Finest in mind and that is YOU!
If you would like to be featured, or would like to see someone else featured, please send me a private FR mail.
Every Monday we will post the photos of FR's Military Personnel that I have collected and put into groups; these will be available to view through a link the remainder of the week - every day just a click away. :)   If you would like to add a photo of yourself or a loved one in the military, past or present, please let me know; I will hold it until I have enough for a new group.
Thank you, and please have fun with us...every day! ~ Billie

The Walking Purchase

READ: Mark 7:5-13

You . . . have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. —Matthew 23:23

In colonial North America, William Penn had a reputation as a benevolent Quaker who dealt fairly with Native Americans. When he returned to England, his sons stayed behind. They did not share his integrity. Soon they contrived a scheme to cheat a Delaware tribe. The sons produced an old contract in which the Indians had agreed to sell a portion of land that a man could walk in 1½ days.

When the tribe consented to honor their ancestors’ agreement, Penn’s sons were delighted. They hired three of the fastest runners they could find. One of the men covered a distance of 65 miles in 18 hours. They totally disregarded both the letter and the spirit of the agreement.

In Jesus’ day, the scribes and Pharisees rationalized their violation of the spirit of God’s law. Jesus exposed their hypocritical practice when He cited the commandment to "honor your father and your mother" (Mark 7:10-13). They were declaring a portion of their income as "a gift to God" to keep from using it to care for their aged parents.

The Bible is not a tool to get what we want. Instead, we must ask God to help us understand its intended purpose. Let’s be sure we don’t neglect the "weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith" (Matt. 23:23).

For Further Study
Want to get more out of reading the Bible?
Read How Can I Know God Through His Book?

Obeying the letter of the law is good; obeying the spirit of the law is better.

Good morning, Beachie. I started watching President Ford's funeral just as they brought his casket out of the Capitol building. They showed that Nancy Reagan is attending the funeral. She looks very well.

I've got the picture on network TV but am listening on the Pentagon channel streaming broadcast. Don't need network commentary, if you know what I mean...

The procession is on the way to the National Cathedral now.

Marine of the 3rd Bn., Fifth Regiment at Fallujah

The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause. or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.

Have been watching it on FOX News Channel this morning and hearing lots of good history about that era. Learned a few things but was mostly reminded of things I already knew but had forgotten.

I am the same way, Aqua. I forget things and need to be reminded. I was conscious during Ford's presidency...wasn't I?...;^)

The music at the Cathedral is quite majestic and beautiful. The Pentagon Channel is just letting it play, no commentary.

Hi Luvy

Had a quiet New Year's Eve at home.

Today, I'm going to put some chili in the crock pot to simmer all day. Take a walk and then try to finish my new Dean Koontz book. Then have to start preparing stuff for going back to work tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day. Don't work too hard. I'll see you in the am.

Yes, I see Nancy. She does look good considering her age.

That's a good idea havimg the Pentagon channel broadcast. I do know what you mean about the other commentary. I was stewing about that earlier.

Now, I'm off to put some chili makings in the crock pot and take a quick walk. Got to get rid of some of the hoiday 'stuffings' if you know what I mean (wink). LOL

I have enjoyed my time off. I'm getting use to it and it'll make it hard to go back tomorrow.

Are you feeling better?

Good morning, Mac

Windy this morning? I haven't really been outside.
A chilly morning as well. I am happy to see the sun this morning, especially after yesterday. Very dreary.

You went to work? Not in DC, I'm sure. Not much traffic, either, huh?

Have a good day.

I remember your plan for the new year, Beachy. *wink*

George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush look uncommonly good also.

I really feel sorry for the Ford family to have to go through days of this.

Thank God I am no former politican and that I will be cremated without ceremony! Easier on my family.

I'm enjoying the special programming, there's a segment on now about the guards at the Unknown Tomb. Those guards have always fascinated me.

You're Rusty, right?

Thank you.


Yes this is a big honor for me. One that I didn't expect to be doing either.

I think it's probably going to be my next duty station when I'm done with The Old Guard.
