In the United States, a uniform hat is sometimes referred to officially as a cover, as in: “Soldier, remove your cover!” or “You’re not in uniform without your cover.”
The Ladies Auxiliary, Military Order of the Purple Heart is asking crafters to join us in Operation We’ve Got You Covered, a patriotic program that provides support and comfort to hospitalized and homebound Veterans.
Our hospitalized and homebound veterans will appreciate your handcrafted cap covers, lap covers, bed covers, amputee stump covers, or any patriotic hand crafted items. Our friends at Red Heart have several Patriotic patterns for you to choose from. There are over 300 locations of VA facilities nationwide. Your donation will help many veterans receive much needed care items that can only come from giving Hearts like yours. Thank you for helping to make a difference in the lives of our veterans.
