Project Valour-IT, tonight's topic on the Andrea Shea King Show

Just what is Project Valour-IT?

From their site:

Project Valour-IT, in memory of SFC William V. Ziegenfuss, helps provide voice-controlled and adaptive laptop computers to wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries at major military medical centers. Operating laptops by speaking into a microphone or using other adaptive technologies, 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. The experience of MAJ Charles "Chuck" Ziegenfuss, a partner in the project who suffered serious hand wounds while serving in Iraq, illustrates how important these laptops can be to a wounded service member's recovery.

More from Third Wave Dave:

Team Air Force Leader, Mrs. Greyhawk (of Mudville Gazette), along with Beth at Fuzzylicious Thinking, will be on the ANDREA SHEA-KING SHOW this evening at 9 PM ET (8pm CDT)--BlogTalkRadio.

Together they will be talking about Project Valour-IT and the Air Force Team's strategy for victory. According to Mrs G, Project Valour-IT wouldn't be the success it is today without Beth's involvement, so we'll have some questions regarding her dedication to our wounded service members and Soldiers' Angels.

Also, Mrs G was a guest of the POTUS at the White House back in September. Along with a few other bloggers, Mrs G was able to ask the president questions as well as give her input. Her historic meeting lasted for an hour, so naturally we'll be asking her about this experience.

Later this week, Mrs G and Beth will be interviewed on Andrea's Sunday night show in Orlando on AM 580 WDBO--9 PM ET. The show will be streamed "live" on the internet, so make a note. I'll have more details and linkage later this week.

The latest: The donations for Project Valour-IT are steadily coming in but we have a long way to go before we hit our combined goal of $240,000, so keep hitting the Donation button, and by all means continue aggressively spreading the word so others can donate.

Complete info about the project as well as how to join a team is here.

My trick or treating (Oops, my daughter's that is) should be done by then, so I hope to tune in.
