Project Valour IT update

The big news this week is the fantastic new project from the Soldiers' Angels organization, called Project Valour IT, the brainchild of Fusileer Captain Fuzzybear Lioness. Take a laptop, add software that lets you talk while it types, and give it to the men and women at Bethesda and other military hospitals. Let those who don't have (and may never regain) the use of their hands and arms write emails to their friends and family, give voice commands to browse the web and keep in touch with their loved ones. This is the promise and potential of Project Valour IT.

Take a few minutes to go to the Gun Line and and absorb Sgt B's description of just how important this project is for the wounded troops. The warrior has the soul of a poet, and knows how to pluck the heartstrings...

Also, go see what John's astral projection has to say on this, as well as Jack, Kat, Bad Cat Robot, and of course, BillT and Fusileer6 at the Castle.

Others who are covering this include Blackfive, in his Caring for the Defenders series, Neptunus Lex, Bloodspite of Techography, and Teresa of Technicalities.
