This brings a tear to my eye to think about this and see the pictures of these children, but this is the truly wonderful side to our country that the media maybe doesn't touch on as much as it should:

The guy who started it is Brad Blauser, an Aggie, and a civilian contractor that was in country for a few years as far as I understand. He saw the void to help support these disabled children and decided to do what he could in providing wheelchairs to them. Apparently he got the Secretary of Defense involved and they've supplied over 250 wheelchairs as far as I'm aware. I believe he started the project back in '05. 250 wheelchairs may not sound like much, but I'm sure from the roughly ~250 families involved it has been an unbelievable blessing in an otherwise bleak time.
