What if a Blind Veteran could make phone calls for a Deaf Veteran? using Google+ technology?  And what if that veteran who was making relay calls was 92 years old and from WWII?  How would you explain to anyone that this is happening and going on right now, right now as you read this.  Incredible things are being done every day at the Veterans Workshop.  Think you could help out?

Many thanks to +Sarah Hill  from +Veterans United for stopping by our Veterans Workshop class today! Our blind and vision disabled veterans in training got a kick out of experiencing her demonstrate her nifty new +Google Glass and give us some insights into how they work and can expand our world.

Under the leadership of +Ken Smith  and with the much appreciated assistance of +chee chew  and +Vic Gundotra and the whole Hangout team we have been able to make employment, training and camaraderie an everyday reality for disabled veterans throughout the country.

The +Veterans Workshop  services disabled veterans with three programs. The first is to train blind vets to do relay calls for deaf veterans. The second is training deaf vets for web compliance work. The third is paralyzed veterans to use eye tracking soft ware for digital mobility and web interface abilities.  

I am so happy to be a part of this team!

Boston was never on her knees

This is a city that watched with horror as two punk brothers bombed our marathon.  We watched in horror as a young 8-year old was killed, along with two beautiful girls.  Then a 26-year old MIT police officer, and we remember the hundreds who were injured.  But we Never stopped being who we are, we are tough, we are Boston Strong, and now, the 2nd brother, hiding in a boat in a backyard in Watertown pleads for his life.  I say, make it a federal case and give the punk over to the residents of Dorchester.  Justice will be done.
