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

'07 here so quick and already old news.

I wish our honorable Mr. Mayor and all our Hostesses and all the Finest the best of everything as the calendar turns.

It will be one to remember ... or, forget as I get older and history begins to blur.

May the Good Lord always bless and favor our beloved United States.

I am posting a few photos that my nephew sent recently. I don't think he will mind, since none of our military in these photos are identifiable. He has been stationed in Afghanistan since May. In his e-mails he has expressed such concern for the children. Many have no warm coats and my nephew says it is breaking his heart to see them suffering in the cold. Our Rotary Club is busy collecting warm coats to send over for them. I hope we can get them to the children before the end of winter, but if not, they will have them for next year. Afghanistan looks like it must be about the coldest place on earth. :-(

Please remember our nephew in your prayers as well as the children of Iraq and Afghanistan.











Please God, bless and protect every member
of our military serving far from home in hostile lands. Amen.

Our military men and women are great compassionate ambassadors.

Yes, they are, and that makes me so very proud of them. Highly trained fighting machines with big compassionate hearts. They see so much that is ugly and painful and their job is a thankless and dangerous one. My nephew could be home, snug and warm with his wife and daughter, but he chose, like all of our volunteer military, to serve his country. I am forever grateful for every one of them.

Thank you for remembering him in your prayers, MEG.

Hi, Mama_Bear. Thanks for your nephew's photos and thanks for his service.

I can't help wondering why the Afghanis cannot provide for their children? Even though we, and others in the world, have sent literally tons and tons of clothing, shoes, toys, etc. for the children. And, I mean this has been done by private citizens. I don't know what governments have done; I'm sure we have provided humanitarian aid as part of OEF, though.... ?

Excellent observation, dita. I have no answers, but apparently the aid is not getting to the children....at least not in the area where my nephew is stationed. It is discouraging and heartbreaking.

Very much so. SGT HOOK, who has a blog and was stationed in the 'Stan 2 years ago started an effort via his blog to collect shoes for Afghani children then. He received and distributed thousands of pairs.

That's just one such project that I know of.

Well, I guess "beautiful" is one way to describe it, but it looks just plain COLD to me. It looks like about the most inhospitable place on earth. It's probably blistering hot in the summer too....and not a tree in sight. :-(

Just wanted to brag about my hubby, the nephew being spoken about. He started collecting clothes prior to his departure to Afghanistan, while he was in training in Camp Shelby. He viewed videos about conditions in Afghanistan and was so upset that he felt he had to do something. He decided to start collecting clothes, blankets, etc. and asked all our family and friends to help out. This is something he single-handedly started, not supported by the Army or Navy. Many servicepeople are doing things that the media never hears about. I am extremely proud of him, his bravery and his service to our country, as well as his work to spread the word that the Americans are the good guys!

Our Military does so much that the MSM chooses to ignore, they will work closely with the anti's to make things sound as bad for us a possible and it disgusts me to no end.

For him to spearhead this effort is proof that he is more concerned about the children of that country than the very people that are in charge. God Bless him and all of you for helping.

If the MSM were to do the right thing, they would be asking for help from the citizens to do this. If the people of this country knew, they would respond. Look at the flood of support thyat came to the people of Indonesia when the tsnumi came, or Katrina victims...

The patriotic people of this country have always gone to the aid of the people in need. We just need to know where and how to respond.

Thank you all and God Bless our Military.

You are right about that. The American people are compassionate and generous and our military reflects this around the world. I am very proud of them.
