USO Canteen FReeper Style....Monday Mail Call ....July 8,2002
FRiends of the USO Canteen Freeper Style and Snow Bunny

Posted on 07/08/2002 1:43:56 AM PDT by Snow Bunny



Our troops need our support and encouragement. They are away from home, some for the first time, and usually lonely or discouraged. It is important for us to reach out and help them in the same way we would want someone to reach out to our loved ones if and when they are in the same position.

They answered their call and we are answering theirs offering them the USO Canteen FReeper Style each day and thanking them for serving.

This is IN Coming Mail from some of those serving now.

We at the USO Canteen FReeper Style, a running thread at Free Republic, are proud to support our Military. The mail comes in from contacting some of our Military Bases, Marine Corps Leagues , and friends and family of those serving now. Also from responses at the wonderful P.O.Box that 68-69TonkinGulfYatchClub has made so easily available to each of us here at Free Republic.

They are writing to those that frequent the FReeper USO Canteen to thank you for your support.

ALL the mail posted on Monday Mail Call is Recent Mail from the prior week.

Snow Bunny
Thank you for the tribute to Chesty Puller.
And one of your Bunny hugs to everyone
there for the best support a Marine could
ask for from back home.
My Dad served in the Marines in Vietnam
he doesn’t talk about it much but this last
time I was home, we sat and talked for hours.
He is also a Freeper and showed me what FR
was and the Freeper USO Canteen.
He said he wished FR had been around when he
was serving. I can see what he means Freepers
are what I think about right after I think about
my Dad when I am over here.
Thank you and everyone at the Canteen .


Snow Bunny
Great music and fun day going to New York.

Victoria Delsoul and Aquamarine thanks for
the music it was the best. You read my mind
on most of the songs you played.

Your USO sure knows how to throw a party and
and how important liberty is to all of us.

Kisses to all the girls, and a special one for Victoria.

Your friend,

Snow Bunny and the Canteeners,

I get to see the Freeper USO Canteen each day and I have yet to be disappointed am a veteran of two wars and from seeing each of you and the Canteen,I can tell you I would go back again and fight in those same wars over again.

YOU all are what America is about!

I give you permission to add this to your Monday Mail Call day. I want everyone there to know we are out here and you make a difference in lives you touch. You see, each day I get up and after my physical therapy I come back home. The first thing I do is turn on my computer and come to Free Republic. I keep two screens open, one with the Canteen and the other with all the threads at FR that I read . The information at FR is top notch and usually before it is on my news here.

The anger builds sometimes as I read of things eating away at MY America. Then I read the Canteen screen and smile or a hearty laugh. It keeps me sane in a world gone half crazy with liberals.

Thank you for welcoming all of us Veterans home and for your marvelous support of our kids serving now. The Canteen is exactly how I remember the USO except for one BIG thing, Free Republic’s IS EVEN BETTER.

God be with each of you and your families that let you spend the time at the Canteen to make such a big difference in the life of an old worn out veteran.

In your service,
USNAVY Veteran and now lurker at FR

Dear Bunny
This is a special request, please use the top part of my letter to display
on your Mail Call Day.
First I would like you to know how much all the support I get at the
Freeper USO Canteen means to me. Thank you everyone there.

Victoria Delsoul can you hear me because this is for you.

There I’ve said it and I feel much better now. Thank you for
making my days over here feel a little more like I am home.
The Canteen is my home away from home over here and Bunny
your gift to us with the Canteen is more then appreciated.

Admirer of the Freeper USO Canteen and Victoria, Thank you !

Snow Bunny please put this on your Monday Mail Call for the Bad Boys

My Mom wrote me an email and told me after reading my letters to her I had better check out Free Republic’s USO Canteen for Freepers. I finally did and now I am addicted to it. I don’t know your real names, but the 4 Bad Boys here are Joe, Marty, Al, and myself Scully the Scrounger.

So far we have only been in trouble once, but that is because we had a little misunderstanding if you get what I mean. A guy has to do what a guy has to do after all. LOL

It is good to see we can carry on the fine tradition of Bad Boys that was set before us in you Veterans. Fine job men!

My mom likes it because she said there is hope for us over here when I tell her a little of what we have done. She says if we turn out to be the kind of Bad Boys she sees at the Freeper USO Canteen there is hope. Ya got to love Mom !

Mainly I , no we all want to thank you for the Freeper USO Canteen. There are some tuff days for us and you make them better.

Thanks much!

Thank you and all of you that make such a great place online. My Uncle is with the National Guard and where they are right now, we’re not sure. Before he left he told me about the USO Canteen Freeper Style and also Jim Robinson founding Free Republic.

What a fine man Jim Robinson is and reading about him in the tribute you all did at the Canteen was very motivating to me. I have some favorite days there that I look forward to each week when I can get the time online:Themeless Thursday, Freeper Friday and when you do threads about different topics.

Tell LadyX she is beautiful and I am proud of her. She has raised a fine family besides being a lady Marine. We can always use more lady Marines like LadyX setting such a fine example.

All of your support means a lot over here.
Your friend, Love you Snow Bunny,

Snow Bunny.
Thank you! You Freepers are grade A, First Class all the way!

Now SAMWolf we need to have a little talk here. I read your
Freeper Friday and saw you were in the Army. Now IF and I say IF
you had been a Marine you never would have been in that Volcano
in the first place. You would have taken those fine ladies, Misty CA,
and yes GREAT legs on that one, SpookBrat (the most delightful
personality ) and AntiJen ( got a crush on her) and led them away from
that nasty volcano.

But we can’t all be Marines and you did give the ladies a fine time of it.
So I won’t be too hard on you Sam.

You have it all at the Freeper USO Canteen. Humor that is great, not only
the jokes which I send back home to my family. But in heartfelt reaching
out in the truest support of the military I have ever seen.

Ladies go easy on Sam, LOL , Bad Boys need love too.
The Canteen just keeps getting better each time I check in. God bless each
of you!


Dear Snow Bunny,
You sure know how to make a guy feel at home. And to find so many
warm and loving people that gel like they do is nothing short of a
Thank you Jim Robinson for founding Free Republic and for the
phenomenal USO Canteen Freeper Style.
I would also like to give a special thank you to 68-69Tonkin Gulf
Yatch Club for the mail box. You do an exceptional job with it .

Jim Robinson, a lot of us here can’t post as you understand , but we
want you to know that your life makes a difference in others you have
not met on your forum. Thank you Sir !


To Snow Bunny
I think my heart burst with pride the day I came to the FR web site.
read some things there and then stopped by the Canteen.
Thank you Patriots! One day when I can in the future I plan on
giving Victoria some turns, heck many turns on the dance floor.
Victoria, we will just let ole Sam play the records for the night,
you will be way too busy if you say yes. Dancing under the stars
with me. I took some notes from Tonkin at the last dance and from
one sailor to another he knows his stuff. So I trust you will not be
disappointed in my footwork.

Thank you for the thread about Ordies. My cousin is an Aviation
Ordnanceman and I sent him the web site that day in an email.You
all made his day.

Thank you may be just two words but it carry’s with is a lot of

"I'd like the number for Mary Jones in Phoenix, Arizona,"
the young man said to the 411 operator.

"There are multiple listings for Mary Jones in Phoenix,
Arizona," the operator said. "Do you have a street name?"

The young man hesitated a moment, then said, "Well, most
people just call me Tyrone."

The A-List has all the real "Military" type humor!

Tempting fate . . .

The Pentagon recently found it had too many generals and offered an early retirement bonus.

They promised any general who retired immediately his full annual benefits plus $10,000 for every inch measured in a straight line between any two points on the general's body, with the general getting to select any pair of points he wished.

The first general was from the Air Force. He asked the pension clerk to measure from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. Six feet. He walked out with a check for $720,000.

The second man, an Army general, asked the pension clerk to measure from the tip of his up-stretched hands to his toes. Eight feet. He walked out with a check for $960,000.

The third general was a grizzled old Marine from Texas. He told the pension man "Son, I want you to measure from the tip of my penis all the way to my testicles."

The pension man suggested that perhaps the Marine general might like to reconsider, pointing out the nice checks the previous two generals had received.

The Marine general insisted "No sir, you heard right. Go ahead and measure".

The pension expert said that would be OK, but that he'd better get a medical officer to do the measuring.

The medical officer attended and asked the general to drop 'em. He did. The medical officer placed the tape on the tip of the general's penis and began to work back.

"My God!" he said, "where are your testicles?"

"Vietnam," the general replied.

Please say a prayer for me.
I found an internet company in Coos Bay that is hiring customer service reps.
Thet are open 24/7.
They had an online application which I filled out this morning.
They called me and want me to come in tommorrow afternoon to take a test.
So I'll go there after my watch tommorrow.
If I can get this job I can keep my business afloat and still do my Coast Guard watches.

You too?

I as well will apoligize if my posting has offended anyone.

I heard it said once that it is easier to ask for forgiveness afterwords than it is to get permission in the first place.

Day late and a dollar short CS.

Tomkow6 was just inducted as an Official Bad Boy.

Unless you have a complaint and want him dis-barred, defrocked and Un-Bad Boyed?
