A Group in Second Life Organizes a Veterans Tribute

Every year on November 11th, America sets aside the day as a remembrance to its veterans and for the third year so too has a group of residents in second life. The group, "SL Veterans Tribute" is currently planning for this year's tribute, which will be begin on Sunday, November 8th and run through Saturday, November 14th. In the note card I received from Jill Mackenzie one of the tributes five coordinators, the group described itself as, "non-political and serves one purpose and one purpose only and that is to honor all the men and women that have given willing of their time to protect the lives we enjoy today". The tribute is organized, funded and built on a purely volunteer basis and will be collecting money for Operation Uplink, which provides pre-paid phone cards for military personnel stationed overseas.

Here's the information on last year's event, which contains photos and a video from the 2008 tribute.
