Project Valour IT
Soldiers’ Angels is proud to announce the launch of Project Valour IT which will provide 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 in the United States and Germany.
Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone, our wounded heroes are able to send and receive messages from friends and loved ones, surf the Internet, and communicate with buddies still in the field without having to press a key or move a mouse. Read about the experience of CPT Charles "Chuck” Ziegenfuss, a blogger and partner in the project who suffered hand wounds while serving in Iraq, which illustrates how important this voice-controlled software can be to a wounded servicemember's recovery.
