Taking Care of Those Who Come Home

If you know me or have read my blogs at all you know that taking care of those who come home from war is my mission in life. It is my way of honoring my son and taking care of him through his brothers in arms.  To the right of this blog you will see a Project Valour IT widget.  Today through Veteran’s Day there is a friendly competition between the military branches to raise money to provide our wounded warriors with specialize equipment. Please take the time to click on it and give what you can. If you have a blog of your own please add a Project Valour IT widget and encourage others.

Project Valour-IT 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.  Items supplied include:

  • 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.

  • MORE

    I absolutely love SA, and it is so cool to see you write about them. I found your blog doing some research when someone on the SA forum said they were a gold star sister, and I didn’t want to say the wrong thing. Thank you for all you do Knottie
