Off-topic post: Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

Found via The Questionable Authority, penned by Mike Dunford -- Tomorrow in Tikrit, Iraq, runners from the Army and other Multinational Coalition Forces will be running a replica of the Honolulu marathon in memory of their fallen comrades.

A number of runners are accepting donations to benefit the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, TAPS, which provides aid to families that have lost loved ones in the armed services. I know that many, like me, have family members, friends, and other loved ones serving currently in the Middle East and elsewhere in branches of the Armed Services.

Donations are being accepted online here, where you can make a general donation or sponsor an individual runner. There's also more information on TAPS and its activities here
