The call is out. We need 150 laptops (we have 11 wounded troops requesting them right now) with voice recognition software for our wounded troops to stay in touch with their family and friends. Communication with loved ones is paramount to a successful recovery and Valour-IT seeks to help facilitate that essential communication.
Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, provides voice-controlled software and laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at major military medical centers. Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone, our wounded heroes are able to send and receive messages from friends and loved ones, surf the 'Net, and communicate with buddies still in the field without having to press a key or move a mouse.
Or sign up to be some Soldiers' Angel by sending letters, emails and care packages.
John Donovan has a great post about Valour-IT you should read.
