Social Media Powers Laptops and More for Wounded Troops
Soldiers’ Angels Project Valour-IT Conducts Online Fundraising Competition
Pasadena, CA (June 28, 2011) – As the number of American Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines suffering battlefield wounds continues to grow, today’s economic challenges continue to squeeze military support nonprofits. Soldiers’ Angels Project Valour-IT—which has supplied over 6,000 severely wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines with adaptive laptops and other devices to aid their recovery and reintegration—is addressing that squeeze with a fundraising technique it pioneered: online competition.

Held July 1-14, the Valour-IT fundraising competition will draw on blogging, Facebook, Twitter and other social media to raise money and awareness for the needs of wounded troops. Divided among four “virtual teams” named in honor of U.S. military service branches, participants will also use flyers, word-of-mouth and traditional media outlets to spread the word.

The goal is to raise at least $100,000, which will meet increased demand for Valour-IT services through October 2011.
“Project Valour-IT changes lives,” says Soldiers’ Angels founder Patti Patton-Bader. “Wounded heroes report that being able to use a laptop helps them feel whole again. Physical therapists are actually designing therapy sessions around Wii Sports! And something as normal as a handheld GPS reduces stress and helps a hero cope. It’s just amazing what this project does!”
Each of the devices Valour-IT supplies helps restore confidence and independence for a wounded hero. Voice-activated laptops reconnect the wounded with the world and develop self-confidence by showing soldiers they can continue to be engaged and productive despite their injuries. Servicemembers also use the laptops to research their medical care or prepare for a post-military career. Physical therapists report Wii Sports is extremely motivational and beneficial when used in physical therapy settings, and wounded personnel with short-term memory loss due to TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and severe PTSD use GPS systems to keep from getting lost or disoriented when they move on to more independent living.
For more information about the fundraising competition, email or visit to donate.

All funds raised go directly to wounded troops with no overhead costs removed, and requests for support are vetted through case managers.

How about a little old fashioned.....

........ 'angst' for you today?

I awakened in quite the good mood today. It's Dragn's 44 year young Birfday. I have the Card, the Present, ordered the cake, the Cubs are at the Lair.......

Happy Happy Birfday!

Then I get a call from my Little Baby Brother. Our Dad, the Sar'Major in earlier posts, moved on to his Final Destination. Don't feel to bad for him.....89 years is a good run on this earthly realm.

But the juxtaposition is tough....... really tough.

Son of a bitch.

Happy face in 3......2.......1

Crime of the Century!!!!

Guerrilla camper re-opens shuttered Michigan public campsite

Persons unknown recently re-opened Michigan's West Branch State Forest Campground, mowing sites, moving the boulders that blocked the entrance and breaking into the bathrooms.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources speculates on the guerrilla camper's motivations, suggesting that s/he was either just eager to camp, or wanted to protest the planned closure of more Michigan campsites.

But recently, perhaps over the Memorial Day weekend, someone illegally re-opened the campground.

Grass at two of the campsites had been mowed, as well as along a short path toward the river. The campsites are nearest restrooms, which had their door handles and locks broken away.

Campsites numbers 15 and 16 were mowed and are situated across a dirt roadway from each other. Tracks from a truck and a passenger car were still visible in the sand at one of the sites Saturday.

I'm now looking forward to closures in my SoCal area........

Oh......they mowed the grass? How cool is that?

Mongo LOVES Plums....... in fresh plums, off of our tree in the side yard.......

Dragn, my Lovely Wife, added a bit of music to my badly filmed 'blackberry' accounting of Mongo reaping the fruits of the tree......

Truth be known, I think he prefers chewing on the branches to eating the fruit.......

By the bye....... my youngest Cub and my Wife....well, they are not 'afraid' when I am not at home.

We have the 'early warning'---Tiberius, the 'secondary', which includes big teeth--Uber, and then...... well, you do NOT want a 140 pound Swiss Mastiff angry at you.....srsly.

So.....Saturday night, and Dragn with Lil' Wolfie are off to get Panda Express....I am watching 'The Duke' on TV....... marathon for the 35th anniversary of 'The Shootist'

Ok....done boring you.............Wonder about our Puppy's name?.....
