The Proud, The Marines!! 2006 Project Valour-IT Competition Starts Today

Valour_it 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. I have used this software myself and it is crucial for wounded warriors to have. It not only brings them communication that is needed it helps them heal!! Go to the below tab and donate on the Marine Team!! C’mon, join the winning team, who wants to be Army strong, when you are Marine Mean!!

Stocking Stuffers NOW!

Gfighters_1  What do I get a warrior for Christmas??

Sorry gang, talking Elmo isn’t the thing for this bear.  Nor are the white tube socks with stripes at the top……….(dang, just dated myself!) No, your warriors could get a special sumtin sumtim from you this year that they could REALLY use.

A nice Camelback, knife or flashlight would do the trick!!  Many units wont ask for this kind of stuff although if you had the thought of getting your AnySoldier a special something from Christmas this year, you can by going HERE and get them not only the best gear in town, but the right gear!!

Also, check out the website on the far left……………..you might recognize it!!!

Semper!
