Soldiers’ Angels, presented Pfc. James Hunt with a new laptop at Tripler Army Medical Center’s Fisher House, here, recently.

Hunt is a forward observer assigned to Troop C, 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. The unit is scheduled to return from its 12-month deployment to the Nangarhar province, Afghanistan, in April.

“I plan to use the computer to stay in touch with my unit downrange, take online classes to further my career and for day-to-day socializing,” Hunt said.

Laptops were also handed out to combat-wounded Marines from Marine Corps Base Hawaii-Kaneohe Bay.

Formed in 2003, Soldiers’ Angels is a nonprofit organization that supports deployed service members, veterans and their families. Some of their programs include care packages and letters; first responder packs, support and laptop computers to wounded service members who are receiving treatment at American military hospitals; and memorial trees and support for the families of service members who have died in the service of their country.
