Sink the Squids!

Consider your young soldier of today. Wired. Connected. So used to using keyboards they can thumb-type faster than I can type in a regular way - and I'm pretty good, actually.

Then take away a hand, or the use of it. Or both. Or her eyes.

Then you've got that sullen fellow sitting in that chair up there.

Or, you can give a little of yourself, just a tiny bit - a 6 pack worth of beer is fine. Or soda if you don't drink. If 130 of you who read this space regularly (vice those who've given already this time 'round, natch) give $5 each - that's a voice-activated laptop.

Payday is tomorrow... but I bet you've got $5 sitting in that account right now....

Oh, sure, you *could* donate via the Navy Team... simply by clicking on that graphic.

You could waste your money that way. Or, you could toss it down the Marine rat-hole. Or even *shudder* donate via the Zoomies.

But you don't want to do that. You want to click on that button down there - and be Army Strong! You know you do. And in your heart of hearts, you want to do it again... after payday!

It's a tax-deductible donation and eligible for matching funds from companies who do that sort of thing (see: http://soldiersangels.org/valour/irsinfo.html 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
