Project Valour-IT, the brain child of Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss (along with Fbl) - tcoverride.com, 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. The voice activated software allows the wounded to operate laptop computers 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, all without having to press a key or move a mouse.
The military blogs are heading up Valour-IT's online fundraising competition. The goal of this friendly competition is to use the naturally occurring inter-service rivalry to raise money to help reconnect our wounded warriors with the world! The competition started on October 29 and runs through Veterans Day.
Giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world. The blogger teams have been divided along military branches, with civilians "up for grabs."
