Project Valour-IT

Project Valour-IT is back, operating from today through Veteran’s Day.  The project, as described by Blackfive:

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss (Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss’ father), 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. 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.

Valour-IT’s online fundraising competition begins today! Let’s see who can raise the most money to help reconnect our wounded warriors with the world!

WHAT: Friendly fundraising competition for Valour-IT.
WHEN: October 30th through Veterans Day, November 10th .
WHERE: Based in the blogosphere, spreading everywhere else.
WHY: Because giving wounded warriors with hand and arm injuries access to a computer supports their healing and puts them back in touch with the world.
HOW: Blogger teams will be divided along military branches, with civilians “up for grabs.”

The lines are drawn by service rivalry:

Non-military bloggers should choose a branch the Army to support.

Now, normally, I don’t take part in the brutal gentle inter-service rivalry, especially during war. But this is for a very important charity. So, civilian bloggers, choose your branch. Choose wisely…

Sign up for the Army team by enlisting at the Project Valour-IT site and click (under Army) “Join”. We’ll generate links, buzz, and get these heroes some Commo support!

The Fetching Mrs. Hewitt is a USMC brat, so, we recommend a donation via the USMC Team headquartered at Villainous Company.
