USO Canteen FReeper Style ....10-27, 28-01.....Weekend Edition

USO Canteen Freeper Style

War has come to our shores. It was committed on American soil.  We have been able to live in Freedom only because of those who have fought in the past wars giving life, limb and all the sacrifices for us to live in Freedom and go about our day without fear.

On September 11, 2001, that comfort, that feeling of living in a land that would not be attacked ended.

William T. Sherman said it succinctly, "War is hell."

The day has come for this Nation and its people to understand that there is a risk in losing its freedom, and in reality there always has been. We have ONLY stayed free because of the sacrifices of our military, our warriors.

This is about saving the future of America. Aristotle said, "We make war that we may live in peace."




We are seeing the American Flag flying at homes now more than ever in my lifetime. We are seeing the American Flag flying on vehicles and people wearing Flag pins and small Flags on their clothes. America is united in the cause for Freedom and for our country to WIN against the evil that came upon our land to kill and hurt us. To change our way of life and to destroy America which is US, you and me. To take away our precious Freedom.



This is the Freeper version of the USO Canteen. Where soldiers could come and feel a small part of being at home. It is a place where you that have family in the military can post a thought to a loved one that might be able to read it far away from home. A place where we that support our military can help support them, post to them, fun graphics showing the price in America and our troops. Poems, quotes, cartoons, or articles of how America is behind our troops.

Those in our military are our Nation's warriors. Let us join hands, fly our Flag and let the world know how important our warriors are to us....And that our MILITARY, our Warriors, are America's TRUE HEROS!


"No Marine was ever honored for what they received. Honor was the reward for what they gave." (Anonymous) CHIEF gave his all in many ways. He touched our lives and his friendship meant so much to all of us. He will live in our hearts forever, and his friendship will always be a bright and shining memory in our hearts and souls.

American National Anthem
Anchors Away
America Medley
Battle Hymn of the Republic

High Fever (bagpipes)

From Snow Bunny: From the information I am getting in my emails and phone calls, we have now 7 bases and 3 Marine Corps League Clubs lurking at our Canteen here at FR. They told me it was ok to say they were lurking.
Some of their families are FReepers and posting here as well.
I sent Bob Hope the url for Free Republic and for the Canteen.With a hand written letter explaining Free Republic, Jim Robinson and his vision and the hard work he has done. He LOVES it !
Th various Canteen threads are being printed out and being sent to our troops, especially the graphics, poems, jokes, cartoons, wonderful stories etc. that they would enjoy.
If any one you have a base in your area, please take them a sheet to put on their bulletin board of both Free Republic and the USO Canteen.
Thank you all for YOU are what makes the Canteen special. And for every veteran here at FR.......... WELCOME HOME!

Didn't get this posted on Friday but maybe some will save the info and get busy on Monday ..... phone calls or emails would be better than letters, for obvious reasons.

The USO!!! What a great place after a 12 hour bombing run in a trusty Lancaster!

Thanks, ladies and gents, for inviting the RCAF in for a pint and a song!

There's my ship on a pedestal now, proud as ever in my hometown, and since I decided to become an American in 1959, here's my song for everybody!

Thanks for always making me feel at home, friends. Stay well and vigilant...FRegards

I don't know what happened to my dancing 7-up cans.
The "gif" isn't working and I don't know why.

Sorry!

I store mine at Photo point and sometimes that happens to me too. I wish I knew what happens when it does that. I bet it is cute too. Dancing 7 UP cans what fun.I am so glad I met you on here. There are so many threads and sometimes we can be here for months and months and still not meet everyone.

You know that I love you Billie, but this picture of my jaunty Air crew days just keeps reminding me that I died in a fiery crash in 1943.

That little setback hasn't kept me from posting to FR all these years, but it does bring back a few painful memories (still have a crick in the lower back). So much for angelic infallability!

Hi, TGYC and Snow Bunny!

Am glad to have met both of you here at FR. This is a wonderful thread, and I'm having a great time taking in all the yummy snacks and fun pics (it's 2am and way past my bed time, but who's counting, right?)

TGYC, you're right, the cans are haunted!!!
It's getting pretty close to the 30th. (hehe)

Those Halloween cookies look great!

Snow Bunny, I do store my pics at PhotoPoint but they tell me that the server doesn't allow animation at this time. I have to copy and store the animated pics in a desktop folder, but some do not turn out animated.

All the food looks so scrumptious!

I didn't see it in that light. I meant to type in Snow Bunny's name and forgot before pressing the "post" button . . . or maybe I did type it in and it just disappeared!!! (Yah-weee)

With my luck so far, I'd better quit for the night, non?
Not used to being up so late.
