Comfort Quilts for Families of Fallen Military

This is a neat thing for those of you who like to do crafts:

Here's the info:

Marine Comfort Quilt Group is a not for profit ministry whose objective is to provide a memorial quilt of comfort to the next of kin of our fallen military. Our quilts are made from thirty quilt squares, each containing an inspirational message from it's donor or another serviceman.

Our quilts are stitches of love from those who want so badly to bring comfort, but don't know how to help.

Our Marine Comfort Quilt Group has now decided to take on a greater project. With the War on Iraq, we have lost many Marines.

Our initial project was to make one quilt for each family of a fallen Marine, but we have since expanded this project to include all members of our Armed Forces that gave their life in this war.

We are praying that soon these quilts will no longer be needed, but until then, we will not stop stitching until each family has been provided a small gift of comfort.

Here's a link to their web site:

My wife quilts, and my dad served in the Korean War in the Marines. I'll talk to her about joining up.
