  1. Thanks James, but I sadly must decline your kind offer of a Gmail invite since I already have an account. HOWEVER, is there any way I could request that this invitation be given to a service member serving overseas? If so, I would appreciate it greatly.

  2. James Joyner says:

    Sure. I know there’s a program out there that does that. Do you have the contact info?

  3. No, I didn’t even realize there was a program to do this! Man, this 21st Century is something else. I’ll look around and see what I can find.

  4. Okay–I found one called

  5. James Joyner says:

    It’s done. Just waiting for the procedure to go through:

    Thank you so much for your donation of Gmail to our Gmail 4 Troops project! Please know that due to the circumstances of our troops overseas, and the nature of military communications, it may be several days or more before you are matched up with the person to whom you will be donating your invitation, but you WILL be matched up with someone! Thank you again for supporting these brave men and women.
