Marines Think of Everything in War! Support Project Valour IT

If a Muslim sees a naked woman --- 

they are supposed to kill themselves !!

Ya got to love the Marines!

Project Valour IT is a charity that purchases laptops with microphones and speakers for our injured troops. The voice controlled software would help the injured troops still write letters/emails to family as well as read email and surf the web while recuperating.

From their site:

Every cent raised for Project Valour-IT goes directly to the purchase and shipment of voice-activated laptops for wounded servicemembers. As of October 2006, Valour-IT has distributed nearly 600 laptops to severely wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines across the country.

During its initial phase, Valour-IT created "libraries" of laptops equipped with voice-controlled software for the severely wounded staying at major military medical centers. In many cases a laptop was provided to a wounded hero for permanent use.

Because some of you have sons and daughters serving now, I want to give you an opportunity as well to donate to their branch with Project Valour IT.

Dates: From October 30th until November 10th (a day rich with significance for many reasons, not the least of which is that on that day in 1775 the United States Marine Corps was founded by the Continental Congress) Theodore's World or also known as PC Free Zone will carry the battle colors for the Project Valour IT Marine Corps fundraising team.

If you're a blogger, you can sign up and join a team here. You will get button code so your readers can make a donation (see below) that will be credited to your team.

If you wish to donate, you can use the button below or the one in my sidebar, or send a check (with MARINES in all caps on it!) to:

Soldiers' Angels

San Antonio, TX 78248

Other ways to promote:

* Blog and email your friends about Valour-IT and the competition
* Tell your friends, family and neighbors about Valour-IT
* Challenge your co-workers or employer to match donations
* Consider involving clubs, churches, or charitable organizations you are involved with. Maybe your church would designate all or part of a Sunday collection. How about Scouts?
* Post flyers around your neighborhood
* If you have any contacts in the media (local or national newspapers, radio, TV, PLEASE spread the word! Point them to the Project Valour IT site

Project Valour IT offers a way for us to tell them we have not forgotten their sacrifices, and that is truly priceless.

I don't see how they're getting away with that since the military has gone so PC.

Back about 1990 we had a couple KC-135's with nose art that my Captain described as "hot". Folks from all over the base came to check out the lady in the sheer negligee painted on the aircraft. Eventually it had to go as it may offend someone. Shoot, our female maintainers thought it was great.

giggle...I know what you mean Bob. I was surprised, happy but surprised. I think it is great, I was just surprised they could do it in the land of sand.
