This is such a great program, please help us to show these wounded Sailors how grateful we are for their unselfish sacrifices. What this program entails is creating for them a life that is closer to the one they used to know before their injuries.

I will be trying to raise more money than the Army, Marines and everyone else! for our Sailors to receive a laptop computer that is voice activated. This way, they can communicate with loved ones through e-mail, blog, keep a diary of their progress, etc.

Soldiers’ Angels started this program a few years back. Won’t you consider saying, “Thank you” by donating today?

The white rectangle says, “Make a Donation.” All monies go directly to the program. I receive nothing, and I would not accept anything. This is about them. So come on. Dig deep! We’ve got to beat the other branches, and we are behind. No matter. We always beat them in football, now we need some foot-soldiers to help put us over the top. 😉

Thank you so much for any amount you spare. It all adds up, ya know. 🙂

Hat tip: Laughing_Wolf over at Blackfive, and Blackfive.

Update: Stix Blog has a very touching, angering, sweet, hard and emotional post that we all must read. For most of us, some of these are photos we’ve seen before. He has tastefully arranged them with commentary included. Please, if you read no other blog today, read this one. Write about it, pass it on, understand it to the best of your ability. This is what these brave men and women do to keep us safe. The least we can do is to honor them.

Update 2: There are other sites for the other branches of our military, and I think it is only right that I provide them for you.

I do have a request from any of you techie guys. I cannot seem to get the code to work here. Would you please help me? Thank you. 😉

I don’t know of too many persons who have not heard of the horrific fires in the state of California. The firemen and police officers did a wonderful job, as is supposed to be the case. But this time, there were at least 12 different fires occurring in 12 different areas. This was a catastrophe.

Thanks to Blackfive’s videos, we have one of our brave Marines coming to the rescue: US Marine Corps Helicopter Drops Water on San Diego County.

Awesome!

Update: The first link above will lead you to a wonderful article written by Blackfive. Please stop over and read it.

Update: It has been brought to my attention by xformated that it was the Navy Pilots, and not the Marines (although the Navy does try to help them when they need it, lol. Go Navy!), who were flying the Navy’s Combat Support Squadron’s HCS 85’s that flew that mission. So I am told. If you have a disagreement with this, the beginning of the clip states what I’ve already noted. Go find out from Blackfive and/or xformed. Gee, I hope I’m not starting anything in the middle of the NAVY trying to whip the Paratroopers’ of Love butt…lol.

The Vets for Freedom are reaching out to many of us bloggers and members of their site so that we might spread the good news and good works which is happening in Iraq. I am now challenging you to join with us so that the Marxists do not have a chance to defeat America.

To give you a teaser of their new item, Progress in Iraq. You will find it on the right sidebar in a rectangular button.

Despite an aggressive counter-insurgency posture, U.S. troop deaths have dropped, because they have slowly gained the trust of the population groups they are protecting (alongside Iraqi forces).

Fact: Since June, Coalition Forces casualties by IED have dropped by 78.3% (74 in June, 16 in October).

This is a worthy cause and one we’ve been searching to join. Well, here’s your opportunity. Just think about it. All you have to do is write about the truth about what is happening in Iraq! You want to be a foot soldier? Join here. Thank you so much. 🙂
