Dear Fellow Patriot,
For as cold as January was (11 degrees in camp on Sunday morning), February was beautiful. Nice warm days and cool nights. The high desert can be a bit unpredictable this time of year. I flew over the snow capped peaks on Tuesday yet it was 70 degrees about an hour west of there in San Diego. We had 48 Patriots show up for duty and the weekend was productive in a lot of ways. On Friday night we set up a line in a new location and around 11:30 two vehicles on the south side showed up at the wide open section of border and drove across. BP was waiting for them when they did thanks to an observant Minuteman crew watching the area. A third vehicle saw the flashing red lights and decided to TBS (turn back south). A little excitement on the way out as the National Guard showed up to man the post and a "Mexican Standoff" occurred until they found out who we were. Nice job guys!
We put a cleanup crew of 20+ MM out on the border near Boundary Peak and proceeded to create a fire break for the property owner and shore up our fence line there. It took about 4 hours. Don't think any fires or illegal invaders for that matter will come through that area for a while. I am always amazed at how well our group works together in the field. Congratulations on a job well done. Thanks to our new member Chris for bringing the tractor and saving our aging breaking backs.
Many thanks to Ken who served up the meals on Friday night and Saturday morning. We were treated to a spiral ham dinner with green beans, potato salad, rolls, butter and desert. It was Delicious. He had a little ham left over so he went out and got 40 eggs and we had, you guessed it, ham and eggs for breakfast. Ron and Karen made a wonderful meal for Saturday night as well. One thing I can say about the CA Chapter. We KNOW how to eat! George picked up some gear for the Stagecoach Depot including a new fireplace grate and screen and some old west pictures for the walls. Sure is starting to look homey in there pardner. The new bunks worked out just fine. For reservations for bunks, hookups or tent camping be sure to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Gregg Imus was honored for his work as co-founder of the CA Chapter and continued dedication as a member of our leadership team. He has his hands full with illegal aliens in Lake Arrowhead. Anyone who lives up that way and wants to help out should send Gregg an email at MMPatriot2@Gmail.com
Ken Dreger received the Distinguished Service Award for his efforts in Camp Vigilance. Ken is always ready to dig in and get things done around camp. Not a broom or bucket is safe when he is around. Congratulations on your much deserved award Ken.
We have TWO new chapters to announce. The Desert Cities Minutemen led by Linda Kienle has formed and will serve the San Bernardino, Apple Valley, Victorville areas. Anyone living in this area should get in touch with Linda to help set up local activities. You can reach her at DesertCitiesMM@minutemanhq.com . Many thanks to Linda for stepping up and taking on the responsibility of running a Chapter. She will need your support so send her a note and get things rolling up that way.
The LA Minutemen is our newest chapter headed up by none other than Tony Dolz. Tony is a serious illegal immigration activist and plans all kinds of rallies and activities in the area formerly known as Los Angeles CA that has now been ceded to Mexico by Mayor Villaraigosa and other local politicians. And you thought San Francisco was bad. Tony can be reached at LAMinutemen@minutemanhq.com. He also needs some folks to step up and help run the Chapter. He is already looking at starting another Chapter with local residents in Santa Barbara. Go TONY.
