They are coming home folks.
They are every bit the men and women they were when they left, but some have scars. Some deeper than others. Some more permanent.

Soldiers Angels and Valour IT can and does help.

You can to. Your donation will them supply a Voice Activated laptop to those troops whom are injured to the point they can not type an E-mail or dial a phone.

Go to our auction site if you wish something to be given to you in return.

Go to our direct donation page if you don’t.

It doesn’t have to be a fortune. Anything and everything helps.

And the cause is worth while.

My tribute, and yes that is me once again

Lets Rock & Roll ladies and gentlemen!

It’s that time of week again, the one where our time of servitude, mindless paper pushing agony or greasy truck wheels is over!

12 hours until beer thirty and we can join the Window-Down, Foot-Down, gear-jammin, clutch-bangin, corner-squealin-mad-rush-to-the-Posarnada-so-we-can-grab-a-beer-and-call-it-a-weekend-medicine-club!

In honor of VALOUR-IT something for my fellow Warriors!

“Yesterday at the beginning of the ground war Iraq had the fourth largest army in the world. Today they have the second largest army in Iraq”

- Attributed to General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, regarding Gulf War I

And some jammin tunes for my fellow Warriors!

But as you grab your car keys and head for the door, remember this I ask:

Somewhere a soldier, sailor or airman is lying flat on their back. They can’t write. Or type. They can’t operate a phone. They are pushing, working, struggling to regain a part of themselves that quite possibly they may never get back again.

Soldiers Angels, and VALOUR-IT help them. You can help them. We can help them.

So as you put your ride in to gear, and crank the CD player, before you lay that $20 on the bar for the first round. Make it a $10 today.

Give $10 to help a military member in dire need.

Think of it as buying them a round as well.

A Round of hope.

Ya’ll have a good Friday!

15 Commandants

(also known as “The SAS Guide to OPSEC”)

  • I. Thou shalt not park thy helicopter in the open, for it bringeth the rain of steel.
  • II. Thou shalt not expose thy shiny mess gear, for it bringeth unwanted guests to chow.
  • III. Thou shalt not wear white T-shirts, or thine enemies will dye them red.
  • IV. Thou shalt provide overhead concealment, for thine enemies’ eyes are upon thee.
  • V. Thou shalt cover thy tall antenna, for fly swatters groweth not in yon wood.
  • VI. Thou shalt use a red lens on thy flashlight, or it shall appear as a star in the East.
  • VII. Thou shalt cover the glass on thy vehicle, for the glare telleth thine enemy thy location.
  • VIII. Thou shalt blend with thy surroundings, for trees groweth not in yon desert.
  • IX. Thou shalt cover the tracks of thy vehicle, for they draweth pretty pictures.
  • X. Thou shalt cover thy face, hands, and helmet, for thine enemies maketh war not on bushes.
  • XI. Thou shalt not drape thy net on thy tent, for it looketh like tent draped in net.
  • XII. Thou shalt hide the wires of thy c0mmo, for they pointeth to thee.
  • XIII. Thou shalt practice the art of dispersion, or one round will finish you all.
  • XIV. Thou shalt pick up thy trash and litter, for they exposeth thy presence.
  • XV. Thou shalt conceal the noise of thy generator, for thine enemies are listening.

We here at ®Evil are answering the call: Team Army naturally.

Pick up Your Weapon and Follow me!

We have been helping the VALOUR-IT team every since its inception. We are proud to once again offer up our services, as well as our pride to assist them once again! Be ready for madness.

At ®Evil this isn’t a Fundraiser. This is a FunRaiser. Get ready folks it’s gonna be one helluva ride!

From Blackfive:

WHAT IS VALOUR-IT?
Project Valour-IT began when Captain Charles “Chuck” Ziegenfuss was wounded by an IED while serving as commander of a tank company in Iraq in June 2005.

During his deployment he kept a blog (an online personal diary, opinion forum, or news analysis site-called a milblog or military weblog when written by a service member or about military subjects). Captivating writing, insightful stories of his experiences, and his self-deprecating humor won him many loyal readers. After he was wounded, his wife continued his blog, keeping his readers informed of his condition.

As he began to recover, CPT Ziegenfuss wanted to return to writing his blog, but serious hand injuries hampered his typing. When a loyal and generous reader gave him a copy of the Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred software, other readers began to realize how important such software could be to CPT Ziegenfuss’ fellow wounded soldiers and started cast about for a way to get it to them.

“At that time I had no use of either hand. I know how humbling it is, how humiliating it feels. And I know how much better I felt, how amazingly more functional I felt, after Soldiers’ Angels provided me with a laptop and a loyal reader provided me with the software. I can’t wait to do the same, to give that feeling to another soldier at Walter Reed.” – Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss at TC Override (wounded in Iraq)

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss (Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss’ father), provides voice-controlled software and laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries, amputations, eye or brain injuries, at major military medical centers. Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone, our wounded heroes are able to send and receive messages from friends and loved ones, surf the ‘Net, and communicate with buddies still in the field without having to press a key or move a mouse.

Folks, I’ve witnessed several wounded soldiers set up their laptops only to email or Skype their friends and comrades in the war zone to let them know that they are okay. Keeping them in communication with loved ones increases the possibility of a successful recovery exponentially.

THE COMPETITION

In order to fund the thousands of laptops we have distributed and need to distribute, we have an annual competition.

Valour-IT’s online fundraising competition begins today! Let’s see who can raise the most money to help reconnect our wounded warriors with the world!

  • WHAT: Friendly fundraising competition for Valour-IT.WHEN: October 28th through Veterans Day, November 11th . WHERE: Based in the blogosphere, spreading everywhere else.
  • WHY: Because giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world.
  • HOW: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches, with civilians “up for grabs.”

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
You have been a part of our community in one way or another. THANK YOU!

We need you to simply blog and email regularly about Valour-IT and the competition with links to the Team Army donation page. Tell your friends, family and neighbors about Valour-IT. We’ll be providing media, links, and talking points for your Tweets, Facebook posts and blog posts, etc.

The competition is military branch specific and we’ve been drafted for TEAM ARMY.

Thanks for all of your support!

ALL THE WAY!

Soldiers’ Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit with hundreds of thousands of volunteers providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families (Tax ID# 20-058-3451).

Given today is the opening of the Soldiers Angels Fundraiser, of which we shall be in none other than Team Army I felt it appropriate to use one of my literary hero’s for today’s Quote

“A man’s worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.”

- Marcus Aurelius

Details on the Fundraiser upcoming later this morning!

Once upon a time the dream of immigrants was American Citizenship.

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God

However, one city, one state at a time, that is rapidly becoming unnecessary. Furthermore those of us whom actually are citizens are paying the price of the disenfranchisement, as well as the price tag of the benefits of not being an American citizen.

Incidents like this is what makes tower climbing a risky business. Sometimes its tom foolery. Sometimes its the morons who think free climbing is authorized. Sometimes it’s things you just can not do anything about, and those are the most dangerous because no matter how much your practice safety, how much you prepare sometimes things just go bad. Sometimes it’s poor management trying to crank out every red nickel they can from an exhausted crew to meet a impossible schedule.

Fortunately for every idiot we have 2 dozen safe tower dogs who will see another view, and climb another one.

Our prayers are with these.

Via Wireless Estimator

William Fox, 49, suffered severe facial injures, police said, and a hospital spokeswoman said he was listed in fair condition.

Kelly Dougherty, 30, suffered a foot injury, and he was being evaluated Monday evening, authorities said.

Gregory Campbell, 44, went to the hospital for evaluation and was discharged.

October 25, 2010 – Two tower techs fell while working on a WCNY antenna on the WKTV tower on Smith Hill Rd., north of Utica, NY this morning at 11:30 a.m.

A third tower tech hit his head on a tower leg following the rigging accident, but was able to climb his way down and was then transported to a local hospital along with his co-workers.
