I don't know if y'all are following this, but White Rose had posted earlier this week that Fred Phelps and his so-called 'church' were going to be protesting at Walter Reed Army Medical Center this past Thursday.

Fred Phelps visit to DC
Today, CJ over at A Soldiers Perspective had a post up about the counter protest
and there's a link on his post to pictures at The Free Republic
Click here: AAR: Phelps' Traveling Freak Show Greeted by DC Chapter at Walter Reed 4/6/06 (Graphics Intensive) That graphics intensive warning is for real......it was extraordinarily upsetting to watch fellow Americans stomping on the flag.....I've only ever seen other nations that hate our country doing that before.
You'll also see that some wounded vets from Walter Reed showed up to counter protest. I can only applaud them....when I think of the fact that they are there RECOVERING, and they were faced with this? Words fail me.
But it looks like the veterans and some guys from Rolling Thunder and the Patriot Guard , and the FReepers who have been faithfully going out every Friday night for months to counter Code Pink protests at Walter Reed, all stepped up . God bless them all!
