Project Valour-IT: How it all began...

At the American Veterans Center's 2008 conference, Major Chuck Ziegenfuss talks about the injuries he sustained in Iraq in 2005 and the inception of Project Valour-IT.

To date, Soldiers' Angels Project Valour-IT has supplied over 6,000 severely wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines with adaptive laptops and other devices to aid their recovery and reintegration.

Your contribution will help keep our Wounded Warriors connected to the world as they heal. It will remind them they are NOT alone - that they still have something to contribute, they are still a vital part of this nation, and even though they may have lost parts of themselves they can never recover, though they may temporarily be feeling hopeless, helpless, even alone - they aren't.

Soldiers' Angels Germany is proud once again to be a member of the Marines Valour-IT blogging team, but all donations go into one fund and are used to provide Valour-IT technologies to members of all service branches.

Thank you and Semper Fi!

Update: Artemis Retriever, fellow milblogger on the Marine Team, is now matching donations made to Project Valour-IT through the Marine Team - a great way to double your donation if you haven't given yet!
