    Air Force Links ^ | Master Sgt. Roger Drinnon
    6/13/2006 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AFPN) -- As this base struggles with housing shortages from Hurricane Katrina's wake, Airmen being assigned here accompanied by family members need to have a plan before they leave their current assignment.

Airmen now must obtain authorization for their dependents' concurrent travel before coming here. For concurrent travel to be approved, Airmen must have a feasible housing plan for their families, due to the lack of affordable housing on the Mississippi...

    Alamo-Girl used to have a super Newcomers Welcome Desk and Information Center. I've been on extended leave from FR. Is there still a place where newbies can go to get oriented, pick up some lingo, learn etiquette, get questions answered without getting flamed, etc.? My sister just registered, so I'm trying to help her out. Thanks!

    President Bush said today that his nominee for the Supreme Court may be someone who has never sat on the bench before. "Would I be willing to consider people who had never been a judge?" Mr. Bush said. "And the answer is, 'You bet.'" Mr. Bush said he had had "a very good meeting" on Tuesday with Senate leaders of both parties, who had encouraged him to look beyond the federal judiciary for candidates (...) "We're considering all kind of people," Mr. Bush said after a Cabinet meeting today. "Judges, non-judges. Laura gave me some good advice yesterday, which is...

FreeRepublic Glossary Anti-Freeper - See Freeper Lore. Arkancide = Mysterious death that somehow manages to happen to former friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

This way, they may become oriented to FreeRepublic and...
