Veterans’ Tribute Finishes

Saturday November 13th was the last day of events at the Second Life Veterans Tribute. There were no demonstrations of helicopters and planes as Wednesday had, only music. At 6 PM SL time, there was SkyRider Siding. At 8 PM there was JimmyT49 Dukes. at 9 PM SL time, there was lady DJ Luscious Giano. The last DJ of the event from 11 PM 1o 1 in the morning was DJ Voodoo Cooperstone.

Chatting with him, Voodoo commented, “I'd just Like to say thank you to all the people that made this event possible, and a great big thank you to all our vets and active duty service men, and women overseas and here that make our country so proud.” (smile) “A lot of effort goes on that many don’t realise. It’s truly an honor to do this, I’ve been doing this for 2 years and will continue for as long as I am breathing.”

Wellhung Bagley gave his "heartful thanks to everyone" the following morning, “Well, sadly another SLVT has come to an end. We already have some ideas from people for next year. So everyone knows, we logged 1391 visitors for the week, almost 200 a day. Wed the 10th was out busiest day with traffic right at 24,000. Again thank you all!!!!”

As of Midnight SL time, more than 213,000 Lindens had been raised, which will go to Operation Uplink (http://www.operationuplink.org/) for pre-paid phone cards for vets overseas. This was short of their goal, but still considered a success.

“Mission Accomplished.”

“Don’t ever take vets for granted. ... You’ll get your a** kicked! Ha-ha!”
