A Few of FR's Finest.....
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.

SOME OF FR'S FINEST PROFILE PAGES #7
Many Freepers have taken advantage of the opportunity to create a Profile Page. The results of these creations are often illuminating, humorous, inspirational, artistic or biographic, just to mention a few descriptive words.
Below are some randomly selected FR's Finest Profile Pages. There are, of course, many other FR's Finest Profile Pages worthy of featuring, and we will be featuring them in future editions of Some of FR's Finest Profile Pages. If you have a Profile Page you would like to share, or if you come across a Profile Page that you want to bring to our attention, you know the drill - freepmail Billie, Mama_Bear, Dansangel or myself.
In the meantime, please take a look at Some of FR's Finest Profile Pages #7.
MHGinTN is an activist against abortion on demand. He has a link to letters he has written on abortion issues that are offered for anyone to copy and send to their local newspapers. "Take heart, even liberal papers will often publish a conservative letter, if they think it will incite controversy and up their circulation through controversy." There are 12 of these letters and they make interesting reading.
Tumbleweed_Connection's Profile Page is cited today for all you Elton John fans as it includes many photos of Elton. Some Rush-isms, too: There is only one way to get rid of nuclear weapons - use them.- Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society.-There will always be poor people. This is not the fault of the rich.-The only way liberals win national elections is by pretending they're not liberals.- No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity.
Shermys Profile Page tells the story of Marjan, the King of the Kabul Zoo. Marjan was a truly great lion. Marjan killed a soldier in '95 and the soldier's brother threw a grenade at Marjan. Marjan survived but was blinded, Taliban officials stoned him in '96. Still, he survived until 2002. He was and still is a symbol of courage under fire. He is a symbol of strength when all hope is lost. Marjan's story is here, along with photographs.
Flyer has been featured as one of FR's Finest so the biographical information on his Profile Page is well known to many of us. We would like to direct you today to the link to his "Gallery" where he has assembled some of his "amateur" photographs. His work is of professional quality in the eyes of many of the Finest readers as he often posts his photos here and they are very well received. Take a peek. You won't be sorry!
Sabertooth obviously loves "big cats" as borne out by his screen name and logo and carried to his Profile Page. And what a breathtaking Page it is! It is composed of magnificent art work of tigers and big cats, both real and mythological. Some beautiful poetry also. I visit this page often and am always awestruck. You will be too. Thank you, sabertooth, for sharing these wondeful illustrations with us.
Xenalyte likes to attend festivals and faires in Xena-like costumes. An example: From the Texas Renaissance Festival 2001: Xen Shadowhawk, warrior of the She-Wolves, a bit too fond of strong drink, clad in leather and something that looked like brass and armed with quarterstaff and chakram to fight for justice. This season she presented Tatharalla Maquissar Lindariel, elven high marshal to Queen Sylwen Lassethule Vanatari, leader of the Anareldar.
