  1. Sorry for the delay but I just finished my square. Am I too late or can I still send?

    I would like to thank you for your support of children of military families. These children are known as Military Brats. I am a 68 year old Army Brat. I was lucky; while my Dad survived WWII, the Fall of Bataan, the Death March and 3+ years as a Japanese POW, he died at the age of 55 in his sleep. However, my younger brother was at West Point and still needed some financial help from time to time. My 47 year old mother went to work for the first time since her teen years to support herself and my brother. I was already married at the time.

    I am so glad that people are now recognizing the fact that the family also “serves”, and that they deserve a helping hand when possible. While very proud, self-sufficient and very mature, a Brat can not always do it on his/her own when their military sponsor is killed when they are very young. These younger Brats need all the help they can get and they deserve to be remembered.

    Thank you for filling a great need that most people don’t realize is there. Wives and Brats also serve and suffer the greatest loss, the loss of their heroes for the rest of their lives. Thank you.

    • There is no need to trash the blankets you have already made. If you are in a crochet group you should know that there are many, many local charities that can use those blankets. Suggest you contact a homeless shelter, or the local VA hospital, if you have one nearby. They can use them, also. I am a veteran and was so sppreciative when I was presented one during a recent hospital stay. Call me for more details. 505-839-7338.
