Freeland, WA (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
The Every Soldier Online (http://www.everysoldieronline.com) initiative is designed to provide all US Service Men and Women with a BioCert® ClipBio™ Pro 1GB Portable Flash Drive for their personal use while overseas at a dramatically discounted price.
The ClipBio™ Pro is a fingerprint secure flash memory disk that an enrolled user can take directly to ANY PC and use their personal email, pictures, files, folders and other items stored on the flash drive without carrying a bulky computer or laptop or in having their personal security violated by the loss of the ClipBio Pro.
Each ClipBio Pro is protected by 128Bit AES encryption and is only able to be "unlocked" through the presentation of an authorized fingerprint. Once unlocked, the user has full access to the data, programs and files stored on the ClipBio Pro.
The need for our troops heading off to foreign soil need to keep in contact with their families and friends back home is of grave concern. To do this securely is the function of the ClipBio Pro from ASG.
Since a traditional laptop is not something that every soldier can take with them, our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines are using shared computers to send email, create documents and store their correspondence and personal information.
Frequently they use non-secure flash drives or store the information, or store the data on a shared PC. This practice compromises their own and our national security as it allows others to see their personal data. There are also many cases recently discussed in the news where unsecured flash drives with personal or private content on them have been stolen and shared with the enemy.
According to an Associated Press report on April 14, 2006:
"Shopkeepers outside U.S. military headquarters in Afghanistan said that American investigators have paid them thousands of dollars to return stolen computer drives, many of which contained sensitive military data.
But dozens of the memory sticks were still on sale in shops outside the base and the shopkeepers let an Associated Press reporter review about 40 of them on a laptop computer.
Most were blank or did not work, but three contained data that appeared to have come from inside the base, including a soldier's military discharge certificate, troop resumes and photographs of Air Force One during a visit to Afghanistan by President Bush last month."
This is a national security and personal privacy issue that ASG is addressing through the Every Soldier Online Program.
ASG CEO James Childers States: "We believe that every single US Soldier should carry with them a BioCert ClipBio™ Pro 1GB Portable Flash Drive.
We believe it so strongly that we have set up a Every Soldier Online program that is explained through our http://www.EverySoldierOnline.com website. As a symbol of our dedication to our soldiers and their sacrifices during this time of national crisis, Artemis Solutions Group, iQBio, Inc and other related companies with the help of our team of partners is launching this program dedicated specifically to providing each and every United States soldier with a ClipBio Pro 1GB portable secure flash drive - in some cases FREE of Charge (through a 50% grant discount provided by us and a paid corporate or personal benefactor, direct personal purchase by service personnel, family or friend)
This program is open to all branches of Service in the USA and all members, stationed at home, field deployed, whether active duty or reserve."
At $129.95 plus $9.95 for United States Postal Service Priority Mail shipping the total retail price of each ClipBio Pro is $139.90.
Under the Every Soldier Online Program each ClipBio Pro will cost either the US Service Personnel, their Family, Friends or Their Benefactors only $69.95. I strongly believe that this program will make an important difference for each of our Service Men and Women, their Families and Friends by allowing them to communicate through their secure "computer on a stick" - the BioCert ClipBio Pro.
Service Personnel that wish to purchase their own ClipBio Pro at the Every Soldier Online discount grant price should place their order online and have the product shipped to their station location using the USPS, APO or FPO address.
Requirements - Active Duty Service Personnel from any branch of the US Armed Forces are immediately eligible for a 50% GRANT discount on the purchase price of the ClipBio Pro by ASG. In order to verify eligibility, the product must be shipped to a registered US Airbase, Army Base or Naval Facility or be delivered to a valid APO/FPO address through the US Postal Service. We will also ship these products to any other address required if you provide us with a .gov or .mil email address during the checkout process. You must also state your branch of service as we will keep a running total of products issued to each branch.
ASG encourages friends and family members of Servicemen and Servicewomen to purchase a ClipBio Pro directly through the http://www.everysoldieronline.com website for an immediate 50% discount to be shipped directly to ANY US Service Personnel using an APO, FPO or registered US Base, Air Base or Naval Facility. These products will ship through the US Postal Service in individual packages directly to the Soldier, Airman, Marine or Sailor.
Service Personnel that either cannot afford or do not wish to purchase a unit directly may fill out the Benefactor Request form and put their name on a waiting list. As ASG receives Individual or Corporate Benefactor Grants through the program, we will fulfill these requests on a first-come, first-served basis.
Anyone can be a "Benefactor" and pay $69.95 towards the purchase of a ClipBio Pro at the 50% discounted price. "If you pay half of the retail price , we will match your Gift with the remaining part of the retail price discounted by us. We will send you the name and branch of service of the Soldier that received your Gift." says Celeste Grannum - Press Coordinator for ASG
Benefactors can make a donation of any amount towards the purchase of a ClipBio Pro for a Service Person on our list of requests by making a gift of any amount to the program by clicking on the PayPal Donation button on the "buy one now" page on the website or sending any amount through PayPal using the link provided on the site.
For those companies, individuals or groups that wish to make a bulk Gift we have a special program. These companies may purchase as many of the ClipBio Pro units they wish at the Gift Discount Price of $69.95 we will send them a receipt for their records and send the purchased ClipBio Pro's directly to a Chaplain in Iraq, Afghanistan, or other foreign theatre of the war on terror to distribute directly to their troops as they see fit.
ASG will distribute these Grants equally unless the organization specifies a particular Chaplain with which their group is working. For Corporate Gifts in excess of 500 pieces, ASG can include your company name silk-screened on the rear of the ClipBio Pro 1GB or include items with the company's message or logo within the package.
Your company, church or group can make a difference in a Soldiers Life...

There are additional needs:
Mr. Childers Continues - "We will encourage each benefactor and direct customer to add a "Necessity Pack" for an additional $15.00 to be distributed to the Service Personnel with the ClipBio Pro. In our charitable efforts with several groups, we have found that these items are in severely short supply and are desperately needed by our men and women on the ground.
We have worked extensively with Chaplains on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan to provide these personal items through the "Troop Closets" supported by donations and managed by the Chaplains. The troops really appreciate getting these items from home and also appreciate knowing that we care and they are not forgotten.
To date we have issued 5000 of the Soldier Cards and have many reports from the field of their effectiveness on improving morale. We have also sent letters to the troops through this program and other donations that have made a difference including playing cards, books, and other items that can remind them of home.
Whether you agree with the war effort or not, the safety, morale and well-being of our troops should never be an issue. We need to support our sons and daughters no matter what our political ideology or personal agenda - Period."
ASG will pay any additional shipping for these items. Each of these products and the accompanying "necessity packs" will be efficiently shipped through the US Postal Service by Military Postal Mail.
Each "necessity pack" will be available in Male or Female versions that you may choose at checkout during your purchase. Bulk Corporate Gifts and Individual Gifts will also have this same opportunity at a $15.00 per "Pack". These products will be shipped directly with the ClipBio Pro in the same box to the Service Personnel. Any donations of the items listed below would be greatly appreciated and will be used EXCLUSIVELY for this effort.
Each "Necessity Pack" will Contain the following personal items in a re-sealable plastic bag the soldiers can carry with them in their pack - Some of these items are purchased by ASG and some are donated. If you wish to donate items for this project please contact us.
