Blankets of Hope

The Soldiers' Angels have adopted the Combat Support Hospitals in Iraq and all the Military hospitals worldwide. Soldiers’ Angels Germany supports the patients at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. See About Medical Evacuations to Germany.

Angels are needed to sew blankets! These blankets have brought hope and comfort to many of our wounded heroes. If you'd like to sew Blankets of Hope, send me an email for guidelines and shipping information.

* We are requesting twin-sized fleece blankets and quilts for Germany (no lap robes or knitted items, please). Minimum width 45", minimum length 60". Thank you. *

(For information about lap robes and other knitted/crocheted items for patients at long-term medical facilities in the US, please send an email to the Crochet Team.)

“Dear Angel,

I got shot in the foot and I got your blanket in a backpack… I do not mind going back to my unit knowing I am fighting for people like you… “

Wanted to pass this on to you about Jeff, the injured Marine.

He was sent to Germany, then to a hospital in Maryland for further repair and rehab. His folks were flown to Maryland last Wednesday and returned Sunday.

At work the next day, his Mom told me Jeff had his BLANKET with him! She said that it was practically the only thing he had with him when he arrived in Maryland.


God Bless you for making sure he got one of your blankets. You're a blessing to those soldiers and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


"If it had not been for your support I would have had nothing.

I know that a blanket may not seem like much back home, but here it can make a lot of difference.

You will never know how much you helped me."

Dear Ms Bailiff,

One of your blankets today went to a wounded soldier who lost his friends. It is heartbreaking to listen to him talk about his friends and the incident.

The blanket has a special meaning to him, and although he has a long road to recovery, I know he will never let it go. Your display of compassion and patriotism means so much to them.

It was indeed an honor to pass on the blanket to this soldier who placed everything on the line to protect our freedom.

MAJ C. M., 10th CSH (Combat Support Hospital)

Your blanket kept my son warm before I got to Germany to hold him before he died. Now it keeps his sister warm as she wraps up in it, to get closer to her baby brother.
Thank you. PO3 Carrell's Mother
