I just started an afghan for my "adopted soldier". It is, of course, red, white and blue. Can't wait to send it to him!
Try making helmet liners or ski caps for those in the Middle East. They like them in tan. I have been told that they shave their heads to avoid skin/hair problems, so when they are off duty in the winter or sleeping, they like to wear the ski type hats to keep warm.
I have done this too. If anyone would like to make these helmet liners or blankets or afghans, please let me know. I would be happy to send them out for our heroes.
I would like to see the pattern for the helmet liners.

Thank You All for doing these things for our boys overseas! As a wife of an OIF veteran, I am awed and overwhelmed by the response and generosity of the public to our soldiers. Keep it up, anything from home means so much to the guys, it lets them know that they are not stuck in a foreign country and forgotten. God Bless You!
Jacie, I would like to say thank you to you and your brave hero husband for all of your hard work and dedication.
