A great new way to help wounded troops

Project Valour IT (a Soldiers' Angels program) is up and running and accepting donations. It's mission is to provide computer access for wounded warriors like Cpt. Chuck. From the site:
Currently we are forming "libraries" of laptops equipped with the voice-controlled software for wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines at each major military medical center to check-out for a few hours at a time. In the next stage, a fully-equipped laptop will be provided to each servicemember for use throughout in-hospital recovery. Finally, copies of the voice-controlled software for use on home computers will be supplied to servicemembers who still need it as they leave the medical center.

Sounds like a great effort and well worth our help. Hat tip Blackfive

UPDATE: See Sgt. B's post concerning this new project. Get a hanky first.
