iPods for Wounded Veterans formally established in January of 2011, iPods for Wounded Veterans provides iPods, iPads, eReaders and other materials to improve the quality of life for our wounded Veterans. The intensive rehabilitation they require can take months, even years.
These materials provide a diversion, easing the boredom and repetitiveness of the rehabilitation and recovery process. Our Class A security clearance allows us to personally deliver these gifts to Military and Veterans hospitals and interact with Veterans and their families one-on-one.
