Derek Johnson, Founder and CEO of Tatango, emailed me about a project he's working on to help our soldiers deployed overseas Connect With Their Loved Ones.
He asked me to spread the work, and I'm only too happy to help. Here's a press release from him:
With the help of Email Our Military.com, a charitable military support organization, Tatango has created an interface exclusively for military personnel which easily allows any service member deployed overseas to instantly update all their loved ones back home through text messaging.

How You Can Help
All of you who visit Sling Words can help by passing along this message to anyone you know that's part of the military or post this information on your own blog or website wherever it may be - twitter, facebook, MySpace, et al in order to reach as many military service members and their families as possible.
Serving overseas, away from family, is lonely. Help alleviate the loneliness by helping soldiers connect with their families.
