Support the troops: Project Valour IT

Seems like I hear it every day in converstation with other Americans of every political stripe, "I support the troops..."

Of course, how that sentence is finished depends on a lot of factors. Regardless of those factors, one way to show that support is to take a few minutes to click on the link over the the right (that thermometer thingie) and make a donation to Project Valour IT - A Soldiers' Angels Program.

Don't know about Project Valour IT? Here's link and a short explanation:
Project Valour-IT...provides voice-controlled laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at home or in military hospitals.
The idea is simple - to put these young people in a position to communicate on their own and help them along on their way to recovery with something more than a kind thought.

It's a chance to help and it's easy. Clicking on the "thermometer" takes you to a PayPal site where you can add a contribution, of whatever size you can afford or care to make, so that more laptops can be purchased and equipped for these wounded service members.

By donating, the next time somebody asks, "How are you supporting the troops?" - you'll have a really good answer. And a pretty darn good feeling.

And - in case it matters - your donation may be tax deductible.
