    LET'S COMMEMORATE 9/11 TOGETHER

    we spend a lot of (wasted) time posting comments about a band that went awol sometime ago.

    on 9/11, instead of the usual verbal jousting, i suggest we spend our energy sending emails to the men and women of the US Armed Forces who are hunting down and killing those motherless dog-dick-sucking shit receptacles who perpetrated the crime against humanity.

    the USO and US NAVY have set up programs that allow us to send a message of encouragement and thanks to the people who are risking their very lives in defense of our freedom (to waste away our time ranting about dave vs sammy, for instance.)

    do this for them. it does make a difference.

    and let's sign our emails using our VHForums names (i.e., SeriousDooDoo at vhforums.com), so they know where all these emails are coming from!! might even pick up a few new members in the process.

    anyway, here are the links as well as information copied from the USO website (www.USO.org):

    USO Mail Programs

    The Department of Defense has announced an alternative to the "Any Servicemember" and "Operation Dear Abby" programs, which were suspended indefinitely in the wake of anthrax mail attacks.

    The Navy has developed a Web-based alternative to benefit members of all Services. The program can be reached at the Navy LIFELines Services Network at

    http://www.LIFELines2000.org
    or
    http://AnyServiceMember.Navy.mil

    Those who want to send a message of support or holiday greeting to military servicemembers will find a simple process for delivering messages at these sites. The "Any Servicemember" program allows participants to select from one or all branches of the military.

    To receive a message of support, servicemembers will log onto the Web site and choose messages for their branch of Service and home state. Those sending a message who wish to receive a response may include a return e-mail address. Since all messages are viewed on the Web, the military's regular e-mail service is not affected.

    "Operation Dear Abby" was founded by the newspaper advice columnist and has delivered mail to servicemembers overseas during the holiday season for more than 17 years. The "Any Servicemember" mail program began during Operation Desert Storm in 1990, and continued to grow during operations in Bosnia, starting in 1995.

    Other alternatives for supporting deployed servicemembers were announced in an Oct. 30 news release, available at http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Oct2..._bt556-01.html

    Web version: http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Nov2..._bt603-01.html

    -- News Releases: http://www.defenselink.mil/news/releases.html

    -- DoD News: http://www.defenselink.mil/news/dodnews.html

    one more thing: i have a feeling these websites may jam up on 9/11. so we might want to start sending messages a day or two earlier.)

    message to monitors: if you could make this message "sticky" so it stays at the top of the forum for the next few days i'd appreciate the help.
