A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....11-20-02

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.   I can remember lurking when there were only a few regulars who posted, and now there are over 60,000 who have registered for posting privileges. 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 can no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I've been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.

Still that doesn'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, in addition to seeing FR's Finest Military Personnel every day, I thought it might be fun to feature a different FReeper (or FReepers) each day. If you would like to be pictured, or know someone who would, please FReepmail me and we'll turn the spotlight - on YOU - for the day!

And do let me know if you'd like your picture added to the groups of Veterans/Active Military below. I will keep this page updated, and continue to add them to the comment section of the original Veteran's Day thread as well.

"Can Someone With A Name Like That Be Serious?"

Photo of painting by combat artist John Steele painted in 1966.



grumpster-dumpster
Freeper since June 15, 2001



I have to admit that it was a bit disconcerting the first time I checked out grumpster-dumpster's profile page. The main reason is that "the grumpster" (as he likes to refer to himself) writes in the third person. This gives one the impression that he is describing a close friend, rather than himself!
The information that the grumpster (a.k.a. Greg) sent for this profile was again written in the third person. After getting my mind-set straightened out (i.e. this was NOT some disinterested third party that had e-mailed me on the grumpster's behalf), I set about putting together this tribute. It was a real pleasure for me because I have met up with the grumpster on other threads and our exchanges have always been enlightening as well as pleasant.
Grumpster spent 32 years in the Navy (mostly active with a little reserve time thrown in). "I was lucky! I had a great occupation in the Navy (Intel) and got to see much of the world," the grumpster says. "I got to work at least once with every warfare community (surface, sub, air, and special-op) within the Navy! I just wish my final tour could have been aboard ship, but I'll admit that I'm really enjoying my retirement."
grumpster-dumpster lurked around Free Republic for about a year before he jumped in and started posting (under a different screen name...Is C'usn).
"When I first found Free Republic I was on active duty in the Navy towards the end of my career. I don't know exactly why I was so drawn into the FR scene, but I suspect it was because the people seemed to have such a patriotic-fervor."
The grumpster continues, "There was another reason of course; there was an aspect that cannot be underestimated. Since I was at the end of a 32 year career, I realized that I didn't know much about 'civilian life'."
"Believe it or not, Free Republic is a tremendous opportunity for those leaving military service to observe and interact with the population they soon will be joining. There's a wealth of knowledge and a real feel for what's going on in the country; essential services for those about to leave a cloistered society with specific rules and regulations to follow."



Politically, grumpster considers himself very conservative. He does list some disappointments with getting involved in the conservative movement. "Just before the 2000 election, I called the regional Republican chairman to volunteer. Never heard back from him or any other official," he says. "Since I live in one of the strongest Rat areas in the country, you would think that any help offered might be seized upon. Not here, evidently. This is one of those areas the Republicans have just written-off as being un-winnable. That's sad because there are more and more conservatives showing up each day."
Grumpster is very big into volunteerism. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus in the local community. He enjoys the fund-raising activities and the spirit of community, faith, service, patriotism and accomplishment afforded by working for others in need of a helping hand - not a handout!




"The best advice anyone can get (IMHO) is to choose your friends wisely. While the anonymity of Free Republic is very appealing to those of us who tend to the shy side, it's also a great place to meet and discuss issues or concerns with other like-minded people who soon become "friends" in a way unique to the times," the grumpster says. (Yes, he really does talk that way!)




As for the future:
Grumpster acknowledges that it's time to get a real-job! "Retirement's been great! I've had the time to do some of the volunteer work I always wanted to do. I even got to 'sleep-in' a few days!"



On a more serious note regarding the future:
The grumpster hopes and prays for a day when the unborn finally get "Justice under the Law."
"It has been a long journey breaking away from the PC regulations and indoctrination forced upon the military services," he says. "But, the future looks pretty bright to me. The atrocities committed on 9/11 have brought forth in this country a 'Patriotic Attitude' I don't think any of us (with the exception of the WWII generation) has ever experienced before. If that doesn't give you faith in God and Country, nothing will. And, I'm truly thankful that Free Republic and FReepers everywhere are such an essential part of that future! "


When you're feeling a bit down and need to lift your spirits, take time out and visit grumpster-dumpster's profile page. It is apparent that he is a very upbeat person from the irony that permeates every sentence.
One example of his humor: "Grumpster-Dumpster has no use for phonies... Just the other day he was telling President Bush and Mel Gibson how much he hates a 'name-dropper'." LOL! :-)


Please join me in giving another deserving FReeper - one who is witty, concerned and just plain fun to get to know - a warm welcome to FR's Finest...
Today that Finest is
grumpster-dumpster!

Great Profile you created, dansy. I'll put in a good word to get you that raise.

Nice to meet you, Grumpster. I've seen your contributions around FR. Thank you for your 32 years of service in the best Navy in the world, shipmate.

Now kindly step forward to the spotlights and take a bow. Welcome to FR's Finest... Hall of Fame.

Salute!

Hey there Nan and Lady. It was great to read about how opportunities presented themselves to you on the thread last night.

I like to consider those as "Divine Appointments." Thanks for all you did.

Aqua, sorry for running off so quickly without answering your question. Yep, that's a Billie creation that I'm proud to display.

There's good news on the home front from Dad's doctor visit!!

We went to Tyler yesterday to see Dad's doctor about his neck problem from the accident. He had reviewed the CT Scan and they say that the situation in his neck is not so bad. There was a fracture in neck vertebrae #6 or #7, but it has stabilized and that's good. He also said that it revealed that #2 had bone spurs on it, which had been there before the accident. The doctor reasoned that what happened to cause Dad's discomfort initially in the accident was that the jostling around and taking the head bump when he rolled the car had likely caused the neck to compress. This compressing led to the bone spurs to pinch the nerves in the area.

I told the doctor that I had been reluctant to change the neck brace because I didn't want to possibly risk messing up somehow (the hospital in Colorado had given us a spare). The doctor told us that based on the CT Scan taken last Wednesday, he didn't see any need for the neck brace now. Yay !!

We had expected him to have to wear it for at LEAST another 4 weeks, because SMC in Englewood, Colo. told us Dad would be stuck for EIGHT weeks with the brace. Talk about good news. Dad found the brace uncomfortable and quite restricting of course, so this will give him more freedom of movement, etc. He hasn't shaved since the accident because of the neck brace. He said yesterday that he wants to go to his barber today and get a shave and a haircut, LOL ! He was beginning to look like a Santa Claus wannabe lately because of his grey beard, heh heh !

Anyway, I just had to spread the good news.

So good to have you back in full posting form! Please keep us updated on how your Dad is doing. Sorry to hear about the tingling that he is experiencing and hoping that it is temporary. I know it must be important for him to continue the skin grafts.

Keeping you both in my prayers!

In memory of my fellow Vietnam helicopter pilots who were killed in that war the following were lost on NOV 20. God bless them all.

1968 CPT William Emerson -- HMM-265, Age 26, Concord, Massachusetts
1968 1LT John R. Harrell -- HMM-265, Age 23, Richmond, Virginia
1969 WO1 Eric G. Blantin -- D/3/5 CAV, Age 20, Newton, Connecticut
1969 WO1 Fred A. Exner III -- C/7/17 CAV, Age 24, San Marino, California

In memory of CPT William Emerson and 1LT John R. Harrell: KIA, Quang Nam, South Vietnam.


Unit patch of HMM-265

CPT William "Bing" Emerson was Ralph Waldo Emerson's great-grandson.

Dear Lt Harrell We named a street after you at Phu Bai. I lived on it for a few months and always wondered who you are. I look forward to meeting you someday in heaven. Thank you for serving and loving so much--as to go in harms way for God's peace a freedom. Semper Fi.

Thank you.

You are right about the skin grafts. The Orthopaedic Surgeon said he'd call the hand doctor and give the ok for surgery now. We're going to call him also to get a schedule going.

Dad's been waking up with the pain in his shoulder blade, and I'm thinking that should begin to subside soon. The neck brace may actually have contributed to that in regards to restricting how he had to sleep/lay down. I should know soon as Dad should be getting up very shortly.

Thanks for your well-wishes and prayers.

That's true. I had to wear one many years ago and by actually constricting the use of your neck muscles, you are forced to use others in a rather awkward way. That could very well be the source of his pain.

Hope and pray things start to looking better!
