Aim High

VodkaPundit is proud to join the Project Valour-IT competition today. As you can see at the homepage, Valour-IT is a Soldiers’ Angels drive:

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, provides voice-controlled laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at home or in military hospitals. Operating laptops 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 without having to press a key or move a mouse. The experience of CPT Charles “Chuck” Ziegenfuss, a partner in the project who suffered severe hand wounds while serving in Iraq, illustrates how important this voice-controlled software can be to a wounded servicemember’s recovery.

There’s a lot more information at the link. The current drive is a competition between the four services, and we’re signing on with the Air Force team because (a) I work for them, and (b) John Noonan asked really nicely. Like the header says, Aim High–the Army’s kicking our butts. Here’s the donation button:
