[Contributed for Valour-IT by the most excellent Cox and Forkum]

For those of you not familiar with this annual Soldiers’ Angels event…an explanation from 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.”

*(That would be Major Ziegenfuss now.)

The competition begins!  The first year I signed up I was torn…which team to back (all in fun of course, since Valour-IT supports all branches of our military). And then…I had a DUH moment. I have two blogs…nearly identical…but two nevertheless.  SO…since Dad was WWII Army Amphibian (the Army’s Navy as he explained it) … DH was Navy… friends Army…problem solved. Mom blog will join the Army team and Here, There and Back Again blog will join Navy.

I’ve met Soldiers this program has helped. You can help. You can make a difference. I don’t even care which team you go through…just do it…you’ll be glad you did.  Just click on the logo.
