Valour-IT

New Phrase of the day: Voice-activated lap tops for our Injured Troops. Read it and remember it…

A worthy cause has come to my attention on many fronts. It is called Valour-IT. This stands for Voice- Activated lap tops for our Injured Troops.

That’s right… it’s a way for us to help the men and women who have served our country and came back to us injured. Veterans of this great country they are. Many have wondered what they could do to help our combat wounded men and women and this is a fantastic avenue.

Soldier’s Angels… there is so much good to say about this group. I have donated to them before. Their motto is: "May No Soldier Go Unloved" For those of you unfamiliar with them go HERE.

They send care packages to our men and women and make sure they realize that they are not forgotten. They also take on special projects.

Valour-IT is one of the projects undertaken by Soldier’s Angels and one that is already showing enormous success through the support of Americans throughout the world.

From the Valour-IT site:

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. The experience of CPT Charles "Chuck" Ziegenfuss, a partner in the project who suffered hand wounds while serving in Iraq, illustrates how important this voice-controlled software can be to a wounded servicemember's recovery.

This is not about whether you support the war. Our troops deserve our support… they are American troops serving this country. I know what I’ve done to support them and what I will continue to do. If you have wanted to support, but have not known how, I suggest you click the links and read. Read all about it. Get your information and then think… Can you help this cause?

Click HERE to make a donation. It doesn’t matter how much you give. Trust me when I say they are appreciative of every dollar. To them $10 is as golden as $100.

I gave this morning. I’ll probably give again. I have a weakness in my heart for our Veterans.

Think about it.

It is a good deal for these troopers. I will check it out as well as bring it to the attention of the local DAV and VFW posts.

Thanks so much for posting about this Boudicca! And thank you also for contributing. I THOUGHT that was your email address I saw on a recent list of donors... ;)
