Smallest Minority Donates a New Para To GBR-IV
Kevin Baker, prolific gun blogger at The Smallest Minority and Rendezvous regular, has stepped up to the plate big time in support of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, and more importantly, in support of Project Valour-IT.
As you may recall, Project Valour-IT buys voice actuated laptop computers and gives them to injured service men and women who otherwise are unable to use a computer due to their injuries. Anyhow, Kevin busted open his piggy bank and bought a Para USA GI Expert and is donating it to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous Valour-IT fund raising raffle.
