Angels Among Us

There is amongst us a group of people who do amazing things. They work tirelessly for others, never looking for a thank you or for recognition.

They just... do.

When the Fort Hood shooting occurred, this group immediately had something in place. I received an email immediately letting me know... things were in the works for the families and soldiers.

Angels among us.

Soldier's Angels.

This is their annual drive, Valour-IT.

Originally it started as a way to get voice activated laptops to our wounded warriors. It has grown considerably and now they provide technology. GPS assist those with short term memory loss... so they can still be mobile. Wiis or whole body gaming systems, donated only to medical facilities, when used with physical therapy can speed recovery.

Something that started out so simple and wonderful has continued to grow... helping so many... giving hope.

I was late this year, cash was short and it didn't feel right for me to put it out there, only for me to not have donated. It is the yearly competition between the services with the Marines in the lead! We're not doing quite so well with Team Navy!

This competition ends Wednesday, Veteran's Day. Consider helping our troops. Whether you give via Navy or one of those other guys, consider it.

However, please feel free to click the button and give on behalf of Navy! Go Navy!!
