If you haven’t heard about Project Valour-IT, please consider donating to this very worthy cause.
Consider your young soldier of today. Wired. Connected. So used to using keyboards they can thumb-type faster than I can type in a regular way - and I'm pretty good, actually.
Then take away a hand, or the use of it. Or both. Or her eyes.
Captain Chuck Ziegenfuss was a deployed milblogger who nearly lost his hand in an IED attack. Project Valour-IT, brainchild of Chuck and Fuzzybear Lioness, let Chuck blog again.
Chuck's much better now, and can use a regular computer - but his voice-activated laptop helped him along the path to recovery.
My budget officer, Mrs. Dadmanly, is about to be informed of an accounts payable to these folks.
