Veteran's Day Need Never End

Sure, the calendar shows Veteran's Day as occurring only yesterday, on November 11, but our military personnel continue to sacrifice for us the year round. Major Chuck Ziegenfuss advises this morning that Project Valour-IT, an effort I've proudly championed in the past (see here, here, and here), is in dire financial need; consequently, an urgent fundraising effort is underway and will continue for the next couple of weeks.

Those who are not familiar with the project can find more information at the website of its parent charity, Soldiers' Angels. I'll put a donation link in the sidebar and post from time-to-time about the progress this fundraising effort has made. My link will attribute donations to the Army team, but you can donate to any of the other branches' fundraising teams or at the Project Valour-IT site and the donations will all head to the same place, to be used to benefit of our injured servicemen and women.

At the time of this post, cumulative donations for all branches' teams are nearing $12,000; the fundraising goal is $250,000.

Please join me in donating what you can. Thanks, as always, for supporting Project Valour-IT and our troops.

UPDATE: The cumulative donations graphic seems to be having some issues at the moment; I'll remove it from this post for now.
