Good morning

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen
for today's activities
Just love watching men at work.

Another quick visit...I've almost caught up
but I'm off tomorrow and it's a 4-day weekend for me
which could put me behind again.

DC METROLAND WEATHER

~ Today... Rain early... then remaining cloudy
with showers in the afternoon.
High 58F. Winds N at 10 to 20 mph.
Chance of rain 70%. Rainfall possibly over one inch.

~ Tonight... Cloudy with occasional rain showers.
Low near 55F. Winds N at 10 to 15 mph.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Come in, sit down.
Grab a cup of joe, or tasty tea.
Mingle a bit, chat with the troops
or family member.
There's always plenty of conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS in the FR Canteen.

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.

Good morning to everyone at the Canteen. Another 65º morning here. Feels much better than the upper 70s that we've had the past few months.
