Great Big USMC Birthday Donations, Indeed!

by @ 3:31 pm. Filed under Troop Support, Walter Reed

Thank all of you Marine Team supporters for making such it such a Happy Birthday for Marines and for Valour-IT! We started with $30,000 and by noon had $35,000! That’s twice as much as I expected to raise in the whole day! WHOOPIE!!!

Matching donation

Since I don’t have to be near a computer at midnight tonight, I thought I’d go ahead and make my matching donation now, then spend the rest of the day with a whole bunch of patriots and wounded warriors at Bethesda Naval and WRAMC.




If you are in the D.C. area, please come down to the corners of Georgia Ave. and Elder Streets this evening and celebrate our wonderful troops on the eve of Veterans Day with the patriots of! This will be the 82nd consecutive Friday that FReepers and FRiends have gathered to show our support of the troops outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center and to counter the scummy CodePink assholes who try to discourage the wounded warriors.

See this for more info if you’re interesting in joining us!

OMG! Step away for a little bit and *pow* – look how much the Marines have now!

    Hey, I may get a chance to be in Baltimore right after or before Thanksgiving. And I am going to time my visit through friday night so I can get a chance to be there. I’ll let you know when I have it set in stone. I can’t wait to go!

    Really cool of you to do the match thingy, GN! Since my team had already met their goal, your match challenge and the Marine birthday decided me to hit the button again this AM, this time for the Marines! Would love to do more, but reality intrudes…;)

    Marines shoulder the load. The smallest branch. Thank you all Marines and Marine supporters.

    As a Brit friend of mine would say, “I am absolutely Gobsmacked”.

Tribes. "I am not a wolf. I have never harmed a person in my life. But I am not a sheep, either. I know these forces are out there, and wishing it were not so will not only not make them go away – it will rob me of my chance to kick their ass when they show up."
