Soldiers Angels Valour IT Fundraiser starts today.....Go,Team Army!

The 2010 Soldiers Angels Valour IT Fundraising competition begins today and runs through Veteran's Day.

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, 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.

While this blog, of course, is  Army All the Way  :)  we don't really care Which 'Team' competing in the fundraiser you choose.....please just give what you can, and spread the word!!!
