Project Valour-IT Blogwar!

So, it starts. The clouds have been gathering over the horizon.

The enemy is on the move.

Fusileers - to horse!


I am raising the Regiment, to join Blackfive's Army Team, to smite the ascot-wearers, and the bell-bottomed disorganized hosers who walk that drooling bulldog. Except the bell-bottomed hosers don't even *have* a leader yet! Is there no one who sail the briny deep who can channel the spirit of John Paul Jones? Oh, sure, a couple of them plead things like... "But I'm doing war work!" "I'm deployed/ing!" Whiners. Ah-ha, they found a sailor target to take on the job...

No worries - while we're waiting for the sailors to get organized, we'll work on this punk:

BTW - feel free to swipe the graphic to snark Noonan. And the other graphics which will be coming along mostly daily.

Like the Most High Commander sez:

    "At that time I had no use of either hand. I know how humbling it is, how humiliating it feels. And I know how much better I felt, how amazingly more functional I felt, after Soldiers' Angels provided me with a laptop and a loyal reader provided me with the software. I can't wait to do the same, to give that feeling to another soldier at Walter Reed." - Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss at TC Override

Want to be part of something big?

Valour-IT's online fundraising competition begins today! Let's see who can raise the most money to help reconnect our
wounded warriors with the world!

WHAT: Friendly fundraising competition for Valour-IT.
WHEN: October 30th through Veterans Day, November 10th .
WHERE: Based in the blogosphere, spreading everywhere else.
WHY: Because giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world.
HOW: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches, with civilians "up for grabs."

The lines are drawn by service rivalry:

The lines are drawn by service rivalry:

Non-military bloggers should choose a branch the Army to support.

Now, normally, I don't take part in the brutal gentle inter-service
rivalry, especially during war.  But this is for a very important
charity.  So, civilian bloggers, choose your branch.  Choose wisely...

Sign up for the Army team by enlisting at the Project Valour-IT site and click (under Army) "Join". We'll generate links, buzz, and get these heroes some Commo support!

  • Blog and email regularly about Valour-IT and the competition
  • Tell your friends, family and neighbors about Valour-IT
  • So all you bloggers sign up with your choice of service and get the word out.  Donate NOW!!!

    It's a tax-deductible donation and eligible for matching funds from companies who do that sort of thing (see: for proof for the cautious).

    The snail mail address for those who'd rather donate that way (be sure to put ARMY in big letters on the check):

    Soldiers' Angels
    1150 N Loop 1604 W, Suite 108-493
    San Antonio, TX 78248

    Let's be a part of something big.

Dang Straight! And there will be Cluebats!
