Valour IT Fundraiser ~ Marines ~ OOHRAH!

Do you have pride in the job the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen are doing to keep this Country safe? Then I urge you to please take note of this amazing fundraiser. Valour IT Fundraiser.

You all know each year I pick a differenrt Branch and this year it is the Marines. It would be great to do all of them at the same time, but part of the fun in doing this is the competition between each branch. OH yessss we are in a heated race to see which branch can raise the most for our wounded troops.

If you’re not familiar with Valour IT, it’s a non-profit that provides voice activated software and laptops for wounded Marines, soldiers and sailors. Every cent raised goes directly to buy laptops and software. Many of these young men and women have lost the use of one or more limbs, their hands, or their sight. Valour IT gives them a way to keep in touch with their buddies back in the field, with family and friends during what can be a long and grueling convalescence. They also provide Wii’s, which have proven very good during physical therapy and often help them regain flexibility and strength while having fun.

They deserve all we can do for them.

A Little Joke for you.......

A guy is driving around the back woods of Georgia and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty house: 'Talking Dog for Sale' He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the back yard and sees a nice looking Beagle sitting there.. 'You talk?' he asks. 'Yep,' the Beagle replies.. After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your story?' The Beagle looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA and they had me sworn into the toughest branch of the armed services...the US Marine Corps. You know the reputation of the RECON? In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders; because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.

I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running, but the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger. So, I decided to settle down. I retired from the Marine Corps (8 Corps years is 56 dog years) and signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.' The guy is amazed.. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. 'Ten dollars,' the guy says. 'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?'

'Cuz he's such a liar. He never did any of that stuff. He was in the Navy'

Where did Ohrah come from ? We never used that. It was always, Semper Fi or Semper Fi, Mac. Must be this new corps. The first time I heard that was from Gunny R.Lee Ermey.

Used to be The Old Corps , the New Corps and now This shit.

But this is a Worthwhile cause and well worth a second donation. I did that too.
