Military families at Fort Riley will receive free computers to help them better communicate with loved ones who are deployed overseas. Retired Brigadier General John Howard works for technology company CDW-G, which donated the 150 computers. He says technology makes it easier for soldiers to communicate with their loved ones, but that technology isn’t always available to families at home.
The computers are distributed by Operation Homefront, an organization that provides help to the families of service members. More than 1,000 computers have been donated to military families nationwide.
