For Those Who Sacrificed

We hope ThreatsWatch readers will consider joining us in helping Soldiers' Angels provide voice-controlled laptops to those who have sacrificed for us.

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, provides voice-controlled laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand and arm injuries or amputations at home or in military hospitals. 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. The experience of CPT Charles "Chuck" Ziegenfuss, a partner in the project who suffered severe hand wounds while serving in Iraq, illustrates how important this voice-controlled software can be to a wounded servicemember's recovery.

Please consider choosing the service of your choice below, clicking through and making a donation to this worthy cause. Naturally, since the co-founders of ThreatsWatch are both Marine Corps veterans, we strongly encourage donations be made through the Leatherneck button. However, we remain quite certain that the deserving beneficiaries of your generosity will appreciate the ends far more than the chosen means.

Thank you for considering such a worthy cause.
