It's that time of the year again...time for the Valour-IT inter-service fundraising drive. If you don't know what Valour-IT is, go here. They're legit and they do great work to help out those who've given their all for us. In a nutshell, if you are serving and can't type due to your wounds, it sucks to not be able to communicate with your loved ones, email, blog, etc. So Valour-IT steps in and provides you with a laptop and voice-recognition software so you can do whatever you want with a computer regardless of your wounds.

To add a bit of fun to the drive, there are four teams: Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force. Each team is assigned to raise $45,000 for a grand total of $180,000. As I did last year, I'll be joining the Air Force team. Hopefully we'll do a bit better than last year when we got our butts kicked soundly by the three other teams. There's a donation button off to the right, so please...donate generously. It's a chance to put your wallet behind your "I support the troops" magnet on your car.

As a programming note, this post will stay on top until Nov. 11, so scroll down for new content.

And remember...GO AIR FORCE--AIRPOWER!!
