I received the following email today. They are offering to help Jason as well as others:

I don't see a way to include attachments on this blog so I put them on my web site:

Joe,

I am a volunteer with Cause, a group that does various and sundry things for soldiers recuperating at Walter Reed (www.cause-usa.org). A colleague sent me an excerpt from Capt. Jason Scott’s blog (see below) regarding access to DVDs etc.

I thought you might be interested to know that Cause has established a digital entertainment library at the Mologne House that has more then 1500 DVDs, video games, and audiobooks, along with the equipment needed to play the games and digital media. We would love to extend borrowing privileges to inpatients in the wards but for now, unless they have a family member or friend willing to fetch and carry items back & forth from the Mologne House for them, we do not have the means to make that wish operational. But if Jason has family members or friends nearby who can pick up things and return them to the Mologne House we would be delighted to open a library account for him and for any other inpatients with a similar support system.

I’m attaching some application info. Additional info on the library can be found at http://www.cause-usa.org/main/home.cfm?Category=C-DEL&Section=Main

If you have any questions, please give me a call. Also, feel free to use your blog to get the word out about the library. We want to make it accessible to as many soldiers as possible…plus, of course, we would welcome donations of new video games and DVDs.

Sincerely,

Barbara Lau

Below is an interesting read taken from Capt Jason Scott's blog, maybe there is something CAUSE can do to help.

"Frustration of the day:

American Red Cross located in the hospital had told us that each Ward RN station had DVD's for view. Ward 58 has none, said the few they had "went home when the patients went home" Ward 57 who Ross Perot adopted at the beginning of the war supposedly has a cache which they guard like a "dog in a manger!" actually I would say "pitbull in a manger" according to Dow. So alas, no DVD when Jason wants a movie which is his very favorite way to pass the time and always was a great interest of his. So if you have a spare DVD or VHS, I say, "Bring them on" by mail to Ward 58 and let us replenish their stash and Ward 57 can "take a leap (into second place in number of DVD's)."
