    FReepers are a special kind of people. The first FReeper, was a man named Jim Robinson.  Seeing things take place in our nation that he knew were wrong, he decided to develop an internet site where patriots could gather and network to effect change.  In a short period of time there were literally thousands of people who had joined him.  Many were joining him in Washington, D. C. to let our leaders know, we weren't happy.  Today those people are known as FReepers and they do something no other site requests of it's members.  They voluntarily pay to support the...

            FAITH OR FEAR? For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin [whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful]. — Romans 14:23 Is it possible to allow someone to control and manipulate us, honestly saying we are doing so in faith? Of course not! We know this type of behavior is rooted in fear, not faith. Faith obeys God, but fear is easily intimidated and finds many excuses for disobedience. A person who is a perfectionist, a workaholic, or involved in sexual perversion is just as dependent...

            "AND LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS" Matthew 28:20 One morning I stood on the bluffs overlooking the coast at Camp Pendleton. I spied an amphibious naval vessel just off shore. As I stood watching, it came into full view, then disappeared as the early morning fog came and went. The ship was always there, but it was only visible part of the time. It spoke to me of the reality of God's presence. The truth is God is always there, but our changing moods affect our ability to see. It's good days and bad...

    The FReeper Canteen Presents..... "Christmas in July" There's nothing like a few days of blistering 100 degree temperatures to make us wistful for the frosty months of winter. Throw in some high humidity and zero air movement and suddenly shoveling snow, navigating icy sidewalks and bundling up in layers of sweaters, scarves and jackets sounds like a mighty fun time. It's hot, you're sweaty and longing for some relief from the heat, aren't you? And while thinking about winter, you're probably also dreaming of all those snowy nights of Christmas celebrations? Well, you can't actually change the season now,...

    Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew
            THOUGHT FOR THE WEEKEND There is a line separating dedication-to-duty from "work-a-holism". Dedication to duty is good, healthy, positive. Work-a-holism, on the other hand, is negative, harmful and eats away at family relationships. We must know the difference between the two. Let me tell you about a man who was called the Greatest American Soldier of the 20th Century: General George C. Marshall. Born in Uniontown, PA in 1880, he graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 1902. As a junior infantry officer in the US Army he served two tours in the Philippines, in several...
