Virginia Tech, Hokies, Our Prayers are with You

While we took a collective gasp, followed by collective rage and sorrow, the students, staff and faculty at Virginia Tech are facing a difficult path forward through this unspeakable violence.

Soldiers Angels is donating $10,000 to the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. The university was founded as a military institute, and to this day, the Corps of Cadets are at the heart of the leadership of the campus community. They are playing prominent roles in the various ceremonies. One of their members was killed in this rampage (see next post).

Soldiers' Angels challenges the nation to double this amount by logging onto the Virginia Tech Army ROTC website or by sending donations to Virginia Tech Army ROTC, Account # 872289, 226 Military Building, Blacksburg, VA 24061. The donation you make will help the Virginia Tech Cadet Corp continue on so that it may live up to its motto of "UT PROSIM" - That I may move Forward.
