Some Laughter

(Bumped to top and will remain at the top until the Navy team is in the lead once again)


Ipso Facto Comics has created two cartoons for Project VALOUR-IT. A little humor never hurts!

In fact, this cartoon reminds me of a teenaged wounded warrior who is currently recovering at Walter Reed. He didn't know about Valour-IT, but a caring friend of his did. This young soldier has lost the use of one of his hands. Since he had plans to go to college after his enlistment, he's been worried that the door to academia is now closed to him, or at least that it's going to be much, much harder for him.

He doesn't know it yet, but he's about to receive a voice-activated laptop, thanks to the wonderful donors who have stepped up to help in these last three days.

This is what it's all about, folks. Brazenly "borrowed" from Fuzzilicious Laughter Instead of Tears


Project VALOUR-IT is a great program that will help a lot of wounded like this teenager. It's good to know that a program like this will keep his dreams of going to college alive.


PS: To all NAVY team members, the Army is about to outflank us!!

UPDATE: 11/07/05 Battlestations, battlestations, the Army team has pulled out in front!! All hands on deck!! Time for some heavy artillery!! The Marines are in flanking position!!
