Project Valour-IT 2012

If you have donated to Project Valour-IT 2012 thank you, your donation means that 30 laptops are headed out the door to wounded heroes in the San Antonio area who need them!

However, there are 56 more people nationwide still waiting for a laptop. They need a laptop to reconnect with their world and gain a bit more control of their environment as they face the long-term results of their sacrificial service to this country.

With the lethality and sophistication of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) used against coalition troops in Afghanistan markedly increased this year, Valour-IT is needed more than ever--wounded warriors who have lost two or three limbs are not nearly as rare as they used to be.

Project Valour-IT is more powerful than words can truly explain. A wounded warrior who is coping with the catastrophic rearrangement of his body and his psyche needs the familiar reassurance of doing something he could do before--surfing the web, controlling a piece of his environment, and reconnecting with his support system. Putting a voice-controlled laptop in front of a wounded hero gives him back a piece of his life and hope for the future that he WILL do what he did before, even if he has to do a it a bit differently, now.
