Torn between many

FINAL UPDATE: Thanks to all for participating, I really appreciate how much you cared for those who serve us. You all inspired me & now I've decided to give my old upgraded IBM Thinkpad to Soldier’s Angels so they can pass it along to a deserving member of our Armed Forces. Now here's the disclaimer: Since this is my blog I reserve all rights to do as I please. That's the wonderful thing about liberty and this country. If you disagree you are free to start your own blog and moan ad naseum there. All my decisions are usually final! Ask my son, he'll tell you.

Oddybobo's decision - our Chief Judge and executioner of all internet related decisions on this blog: "I didn't count Tink, she wasn't really a vote, I split RSM's vote (just to shake things up a bit) cause he voted for Army and Marines in one post. So I gave each 1/2. So I have declared Air Force the winner by 1/2 point! I really didn't think you'd mind. Besides, there can be no recounts! *snicker* This was fun. And this year everyone's a winner!"

Update/Reminder: I will be closing comments at 12:01am so please vote for the branch of service I will be donating to. Thanks to all who participated by stopping by to comment. Especially Bou & Army Wife Toddler Mom who made me cry with some of their posts this past week.

Yes, I’m torn between some incredible men that I absolutely adore. How can I choose one? And yet, I cannot claim them all? There can only one which I can work for. Mainly because I’m a monogamous woman, but also because I don’t want any fights between them. So that settles it, there can only be one man in my life.

But who?
Who will I claim?
I have no answer
Not one single clue…
But as a devoted woman
I must certainly choose….

There’s the handsome Army Sgt., whom I cherish & love.
Then there’s the fearsome three-some: RSM, SWG & Ogre, whose Marine-like strength always cover me.
Lets not forget my secret sigh, for the incredibly erudite Mike, whose politics and words give my own wings flight. Finally there’s Lt. Smash, whose sword of truth, has his blue colors shining brightly through. I admire and care for them all!

This is so tough! This is so hard! So for just this once, I’ll let YOU decide!

Since I can’t pick which, to financially support, I’ll let y’all choose the one I adore. This post will remain at the top till you do. You cast your votes in my comments section, saying which branch of service gets my fat donation. On Sunday, November 12th at 12:01am EST I will close my comments.

The branch of military service that garners most votes, wins not only a donation, they get prime real estate space on my navigation section. There I'll proudly display, who I support & the Valour IT graphic until it has full support. I will let my very talented, impartial and very tough lawyerly blog-sis Oddybobo, certify who won, if she accepts this role. Once she declares the winner I'll post it and alter my sidebar accordingly. So, what say you readers? Who do I love?

whomever it goes for, I will acquiesce that it does not matter since it will all go to help people like my friends.

So chose whichever side you like.

So long as it is USMC. Or Army. Either One.

First, I want to see pictures, preferably of them in their uniforms. Now wouldn't that make a nice calendar! Then I'll vote. I so love a man in uniform!

But if you can't get any pics of them, then and only then can you cast my vote for team Army. It's those tan muscular muscles bulging out from under their tshirt sleeves.

I have a pic of my dad in his Air Force uniform. Very striking.

Now doesn't that make you want to put give money to the Air Force??? Actually, I'm with everyone else... just give. It is a great cause.

If I can find a picture of me in uniform, do I automatically win? :)

(I'm not saying I can find one, that was, well, a bit ago...)

Posted by: Ogre at November 7, 2006 07:31 AM

Army Strong!!!

But I'm with you, how to choose?!?! I've such a soft spot for those Marines......

But this week? This week it's ARMY STRONG!

Posted by: Tammi at November 7, 2006 07:45 AM

Maybe I should get my own blog. Then I can offer to donate money to the branch who has the best looking picture.

Posted by: Lisa at November 7, 2006 10:31 AM

I've gone with Navy. I will take your challenge! Whoo hoo.

Posted by: oddybobo at November 7, 2006 10:55 AM

How could you even think about picking a team without SGT Hook?

Army Strong!

Posted by: Peggy at November 7, 2006 11:46 AM

Posted by: Eric at November 7, 2006 12:05 PM

Army! Hooah!

Posted by: RTO Trainer at November 8, 2006 12:11 AM

Have several reasons to pick Air Force, Marines, Navy and Army over my way. I have a feeling I am just going to have to donate some to each of them.

Posted by: Tink at November 8, 2006 12:23 AM

I say Navy.

Mostly because I kinda feel I should pay them back for 6 years of steak & lobster.

Posted by: Harvey at November 8, 2006 08:53 AM

Navy! I am going to try to find pix of my grandfather in the Navy. I have a picture of my Dad. Its a family affair...

Go Navy!

Plus the men in the WWII Navy posters are just so fetching!

Hey, remember Iwo Jima? That was the Marines, you know...

Posted by: Ogre at November 8, 2006 10:40 AM

Well, it would make a nice birthday gift *hint* *cough* Marines....

Posted by: Holly at November 8, 2006 12:07 PM

I say Sgt. Hook already has "The Lovely and Talented and Downright Sexy Mrs. Hook", and that is more than any one man deserves. But my vote still goes to the Army.

Posted by: Amy K at November 8, 2006 05:32 PM

I'm just prayin' it won't be Navy! They've already pulled a November surprise!

Posted by: Sgt Hook at November 8, 2006 08:22 PM

My vote's with Army!

Posted by: Wendy at November 9, 2006 10:06 AM

It's the Good Captain's birthday today over at Neptunus Lex. The big 4-6. It would be a great birthday gift for him! Go Navy! BTW, tonight's post to try to win you to our side is on my Dad... ;-)

Poor guy... has no clue...

Posted by: Bou at November 9, 2006 04:55 PM


There is nothing yummier than a Marine!

Posted by: Quality Weenie at November 9, 2006 06:04 PM

I'm now throwing my weight to the Marines. Navy hit goal today! Wahoo! It's the Marine's birthday. What better gift?!

Posted by: Bou at November 10, 2006 05:05 PM

Ok, gooo air force! They needed another vote of confidence!

Posted by: oddybobo at November 11, 2006 10:27 PM

Everyone has met it by now except one! The Blue Suiters need it. I say go USAF.

Posted by: Bou at November 11, 2006 11:39 PM

Posted by: RSO-AF at November 11, 2006 11:50 PM
