Inking up the blogosphere. And no, I don't glow in the dark. But thanks for asking.

Team Navy is Underway on Angel Power

Today marks the launch of Soldiers' Angels Project Valour-IT fundraiser!  This is a thoughtful and heartfelt project that aims to raise money to purchase technology items to aid wounded warriors in their recovery.  These include: laptops with voice-control software; Wii video game systems, which have been shown to aid in physical rehabilitation programs; and handheld GPS systems to help with short term memory loss and other issues related to Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD.

While support of any kind to this noble operation is welcome, there is a fun competition among teams formed around military service branches to see who can raise the most fundage.  I am encouraging the squids out there or any among you who has a soft spot for the sea to support TEAM NAVY.  There is nothing this here now Navy can't do, including posting up #1 in support of Project Valour-IT.  I must confess, I was initially mildly concerned about Team Navy's pursuit of victory when I discovered the who's who on Team Army--Blackfive on point, This Ain't Hell, Laughing Wolf, A Soldier's truth, normally some of my favorite peeps.  But let me be perfectly clear: Team Navy's not over here shaking in our boondockers.  The tip of our spear is U.S. Naval Institute; we've also got Navy Cyberspace (who's son is a fellow nuke), CDR Salamander, Gazing At The Flag, and our superultradoublesecret weapon--the bodacious beantown babe--Boston Maggie....muuahahaha!  Oh, it's ON now!!

So do the right thing and support Soldiers' Angels Project Valour-IT.  While you should *cough* *cough* DONATE VIA TEAM NAVY, if you have another military affiliation and want to donate through them I might just understand.  The most important thing is that there are no real losers here--our wounded warriors are the winners, and I would have it no other way.
