in the military, in military families, to our veterans and to everyone who is touched by the tough and brave choices military people make to serve our country and abroad.
Those of us at home DO love and appreciate your efforts and sacrifice.
God bless you all!!! :muah:

good org for our wounded soldiers is: http://www.rectangle6x9.org/
People knit & crochet 6x9 rectangles of acrylic yarn & donate them to The Handmade Afghans to Thank Our Armed Forces Project. HAP for short. Volunteers crochet them together making afghans & distribute them to our wounded soldiers. Visiting relatives also benefit from them. The 6x9s can be easy take-along projects, but they must be 6x9" in a relaxed state and of acrylic yarn for washability and no alergy problems.
Another knitting charity for our armed forces is helmetliners:
I've made 3. I like doing them. They must be 100% wool yarn for warmth and safety. I make mine with the neck part more like 7" long. This covers the neck better when they're pulled up over the mouth. There have been a couple of threads about them on this site.
