Operation Perish Hilton
I have been reading about this story a lot in the past few days and have been meaning to post it myself. The famous DC resturant, Fran O'Brian's, will not be having its lease renewed May 1st by the Hilton hotel where it is located. This might not be of national consequence, but for the fact that every Friday, Fran's hosts wounded military soldiers recovering and rehibilitating at near-by Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Fare is steak and bottomless drinks all night. The reasons for not renewing the lease are less then convincing. Milbloggers everywhere are up in arms, as am I. Come on Hilton, even non-Americans see how important this is. Kudos to Chris Dickson for starting the call-to-arms, and links from Michelle Malkin.
Story is also here in a letter from LtCol Buzz Patterson, Ret. , and here, here, update Hilton reaction,
The Washington Post has picked up the story also.
Protest Hilton (you know you hate Paris anyway, so it won't hurt that much).
I want to be a milblog too. Boys, can I join the club?
