As long time readers of InfoSec News know, I have a short list of charities I try to support, and if an event comes up where I think I can help out, and its somewhat in the context of the list, I'll post something here. Its come to my attention that The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) is getting ready to hold their 5th Annual Warrior Relay Run October 14 - 17. http://www.specialops.org/ The SOWF will have about 20 special operations troops - Army, Navy and Air Force, who will be running 335-miles in four days, to raise money for the children of special operations forces who are killed in an operational mission or training accident. Since Sept. 11th, the special operations community has lost 39 personnel leaving some 33 children without a parent. Since 1980, America has lost 371 special operations personnel in operational missions or training accidents, leaving behind 386 children without a parent. The Warrior Relay Run is one of the SOWF's major fundraisers and they are actively looking for sponsors, but also would like to see public involvement by getting out on the streets to cheer these runners on as they make their journey from Fayetteville, NC to the Pentagon. Over the years I have met many of these "Quiet Professionals" and also have had the honor of working for one many years. I hope that some of you will take a few moments today looking over their site, and maybe making a donation. Thanks for your time and have a safe weekend!
