Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004. We are strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. It is our duty and our honor to assist severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and to coordinate the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.
Homes For Our Troops is building a house in Massachusetts,
for SSG Michael Downing. This is an AMAZING story!Â
The are holding a 'Build Brigade' to buildÂ the weather tight shell of the house on
Â December 11, 12, 13 in Middleboro, Ma.
They need skilled labor, volunteers, materials etc.
I'm taking today off,Â Â not because I am a Veteran, but because I am married to one.Â In this time in our nation's history, it's more important than ever to show our Veteran's that we support them and that we are thankful for their service.
We all know someone from the Vietnam era who was yelled at, spit on and disrespected because they servedÂ their country...Â
Â 'Not on my watch!'Â
Our generation has the chance to do, what our parents generation didn't do... Welcome home those who have volunteered to protect this great country of ours!
Today is aÂ day to thank your family members, friends and total strangers for being brave and selfless. Today is a day to celebrate those who made it home and a day to remember those who didn't!
If you have worn a uniform in service to our country, I can say withÂ my wholeÂ heart...

One of the benefits of being the Music Director of WAAF, is hearing new music WAY before anyone else! :) Today I got a chance to hear some of the new Slash album that will be released in March of 2010. We should have the new single (which is going to feature Ozzy on lead vocals) in January!
This song was AWESOME!
And, the lyrics are going to piss off Axl & Black Sabbath!
I heard Chris Cornell, Kid Rock, M. Shadows, and even Fergie lending their voices to Slash. They were all great! Also featured on the lineup... Lemme, Iggy, Alice Cooper, Flea, Duff, Â Myles Kennedy and you guessed Dave Grohl!
According to my 'source', Slash wrote the 'blueprint' for the songs with someone specific in mind. Then, he asked that person to get involved and help write and record the track! Every song has a bit of Slash and the other musicians in it... Very COOL!
This album is going to be HUGE!
There is a song online already, that was released by the Japanese band the B'z as their b-side.
It's Slash with Cypress Hill and Fergie doing Paradise City...
