Re: OT - Wonderful web tribute to the Armed forces


Well, it IS volunteer work, after all.  You CAN do any project you want.
The qstn is whether you can turn in the hours.  But when you give of
yourself, you don't always get something.  You do these projects because
they need done and you want to do it - accredited hours or not.
