Blankets of Belief 2009

Last holiday season our deployed troops loved receiving their homemade Blankets of Belief from Soldiers' Angels, and the project is on again this year! The blankets were a reminder to our guys and gals that we believed in them as they faced the challenges of deployment to a war zone during the Holidays.

A chief warrant officer wrote from Iraq last December:
Christmas came early this year and I just wanted to say thank you. If only you could have seen the looks on my troops' faces when all those boxes came in. I have never seen such a giddy group of grown men. The blankets were snatched up first.

Blankets can be sewn, quilted, or fleece "no-sew" blankets - see the Blankets of Belief page for all the details. Knitters and crocheters, please email crochet@soldiersangels.org to learn how you can get involved. Blanket kits can also be purchased in the Angel store.

Please join Soldiers' Angels in helping to make sure our service members deployed this holiday season know that we remember them and believe in them!
