For 302 Weeks patriots have been supporting our military in Olney. This Saturday a Navy Vet stopped by to THANK US with a bag of WARM egg n cheese bagels. While it was not extremely cold, there was a chill and the warmth of the bagels was welcomed. Probably more welcome was eating the bagels while the "quackers" looked on.
BELOW: Lurker Jim, a Vietnam Vet himself, thanks Navy Vet for the bagels.
Patriots in Olney on this Week 302: Legionnaires Glenn (USMC - Iwo Jima) and Carl (Army - Vietnam) along with Lurkers Bill and Jim, and FReepers GunsAreOK, [Mrs] T and myself.
BELOW LEFT: Carl in cold weather gear. He is ready for the snow. BELOW RIGHT: GunsAreOK is back after a short absence. FYI - I am reaching for my lighter to relight my cigar. Guns kept me so occupied that my cigar went out.
BELOW: Glenn holding up to the chill. Not bad for someone in their late 80s. Even Lurker Bill is bundled up today. The God Bless Our Military signs were a common theme this Saturday.
