Project Valour IT

>> October 28, 2009

"...helps provide voice-controlled/adaptive laptop computers and other technology to support Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries. Technology supplied includes:

Voice-controlled Laptops - Operated by speaking into a microphone or using other adaptive technologies, they allow the wounded to maintain connections with the rest of the world during recovery.
Wii Video Game Systems - Whole-body game systems increase motivation and speed recovery when used under the guidance of physical therapists in therapy sessions (donated only to medical facilities).
Personal GPS - Handheld GPS devices build self-confidence and independence by compensating for short-term memory loss and organizational challenges related to severe TBI and severe PTSD."

"...It is comforting to know there are people who care so much.  After a year of surgeries, treatment and therapy, it can be discouraging. Although I am a trained attorney, due to TBI, it is unclear what my future will be.  The computer will help with my therapy and my transition back to civilian work." – Captain V, U.S. Army Reserves

I have to admit, I saw this on Villanous Company's blog and Miss Attila's blog the other day and am ashamed I didn't post sooner. Please forgive my tardiness. I just didn't realize the short time frame. This Project ends Nov. 11th so, maybe I'm not too late.

Man-up and dig deep my loyal readers, we are few, I know, but we can still make a difference in the life of a wounded vet.

ooh rah!
