Michigan IT Firm and Marketing Agency Team With Northville Dentist to Help Troops Stay in Touch With Family and Friends Back Home

NORTHVILLE, MI--(Marketwire - January 7, 2010) - Michigan computer services company Vision Computer Solutions and Clarity Quest Marketing, an Ann Arbor-based marketing agency, announce they have teamed with Jim "Doc" Payne to donate thirty notebook computers to troops serving overseas. Payne acquired the used laptops which were in working order except for faulty hard drives. Vision Computer Solutions and Clarity Quest purchased and donated new hard drives. Payne will refurbish the laptops which will be sent to units in Afghanistan and Iraq, with the bulk going to Marines being deployed in Afghanistan.

"Troops serving overseas have plenty of wireless bandwidth, but very few public computers which they can access," said Payne who has refurbished over 600 laptops for military personnel to date.

"As a technology company with several employees who have served in the military, we jumped on the chance to provide soldiers with means to stay in touch with families and friends via laptops, especially during extended stays overseas," said David Marino, president of Vision Computer Solutions.

"We are happy to be able to make a difference to servicemen and women who are serving so bravely and are often away from their families for long periods of time," said Christine Slocumb, president of Clarity Quest Marketing.
