Linky goodness

I've been meaning to get up a linky post, since I'm so far behind on blogging. (But there is a new post below this one!!)

Are you mad yet about the rough treatment of Michael Yon by Hachette (HFM) over their misuse of his photograph? If you aren't, then you aren't following the story. Check out the Huntress, she's got the Shock and Awe for you.

Blackfive provides a way to send condolences to the families of Thomas Tucker, Kristian Menchaca, and David Babineau, via Soldiers' Angels.

Fuzzybear Lioness reported on the success of the Project Valour-IT fund raising - over $18K raised! Awesome - Thanks to everyone who contributed!

Bloodspite has a request - and it's not for himself. If you can help, bless you.

The Armorer of Argghhh! shares a letter from Homefront6, wife of a soldier set to deploy, written to Lt. Watada, who has refused his duty to deploy. I'd say that's a direct hit!

Check out the latest on the movie The War Tapes ...

Dear War Tapes Community:

Thanks to your support, The War Tapes opened strongly in NYC. Theatres around the country are starting to call us-- In the last week we have added 15 additional cities! Two new theatres in NYC are showing it now (please see below or here for a full list of the screenings). We don't have Hollywood money so we have little ads but lots of friends. Please forward this e-mail to as many people as you can and ask them to see the preview at: /trailer

And then go see the movie. We have a new clip (the 13th clip we've put on the site!) with Zack and Mike discussing to Abu Ghraib scandal. You can find the clip here: /2006/06/abu_ghraib.shtml

Please welcome Wayne of Savannah Daydreamin' to the blogosphere. He's been to Iraq, he's a helicopter pilot, and he has lots of videos and attitude (might not be safe - depending on your workplace ... Ry, watch out!).

Operation Support Our Troops is planning a pro-troops rally to show our support for the soldiers preparing to deploy from Ft. Lewis:
It's time for all of us to speak out loud and clear again – Never again! Never again will our Troops be treated the way our Vietnam Veterans were treated! Never again will we turn our backs on the men and women who serve our country so honorably!

Please join OSOT on June 24 to show the soldiers at Fort Lewis that we support them and their mission. The 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division of Fort Lewis is deploying for the second time to Iraq – be there to show them we care!!

When: Saturday, June 24, 2006
Where: Exit 119 off I-5 (DuPont Gate Entrance to Fort Lewis)
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

... Guess where Bad Cat Robot and I plan to be on Saturday?
