Laptops Save Lives

That's what Chuck Z says, and he would know. As Noah Shachtman of Wired puts it,

Suddenly, he [Chuck] was able to connect to the outside world. He was
able to take up his blog again, too. And from that, he was able to
muster the self-esteem and internal strength to begin his recovery.
From the reports of family and friends of a triple amputee:
The laptop was the first step to the road to recovery. It proved that he
was going to be able to do all the things that he did before.
From the CO of a wounded soldier:
He expressed to me today in an email how much that [laptop] helped him. So
thank you. Very much. For taking care of my Soldiers when I no longer
From a laptop recipient:
I can't begin to tell how much [the laptop] has changed my stay at WRAMC;
I am able to correspond with my Soldiers, and my family. My Soldiers
are still down range in Iraq. They are coming home soon, and I look
forward to being back at my post to receive them. Again, thank you so
From Chuck Z himself:
It was the first time I felt whole since I’d woken up wounded in Landstuhl.
Veterans Day approaches, you can "support the troops" in a powerful and
life-changing way. As Chuck says, "I can't wait to give that feeling to
another wounded soldier." Please help him do that.
