Okay, it’s time to get serious here. I just went over to the pledge and information page for the Project Valour — IT fund raiser and discovered to my immense chagrin that the Marines are trailing the Army. At this moment, all I can do is quote Claude Raines: “I’m shocked! Shocked!”
If you’ve been thinking about donating to this wonderful cause, now is the time. We Marine supporters cannot let it be said that the Army supporters bested us in fund raising, can we? The optimal outcome, of course, would be for supporters in every branch to raise the desired amount ($60,000 per branch), but, to my mind, the really, really optimal outcome would be for the Marines to get there first!
