Operation Pocket Field Pillow (PFP)

We Have More ACU

Posted on: January 28, 2011

And boy, are these boxes heavy!

Another 200 pounds of ACU remnants ready to be cut.

Carlisle shipped us 3 boxes, and I’ve already opened the 3rd and carried 65 pounds of fabric into the sewing room, an armload at a time. (These boxes are nearly as tall as me!)

Since I just started cutting the ACU from the 1st box, I’m not sure how many pieces I’ll get – so it’s hard to predict how many field pillows we’ll ultimately end up with (I can actually hear the groan from my English 101 prof here!).

But however many we get, we know that each will end up in the hands of an American soldier in Afghanistan.

Operation PFP is made possible in part by my small business, Just For Baby Gifts, donations of ACU by the Carlisle Finishing Plant, fleece donated by Polartec, supplies donated by Brother International, and by the untold hours of work by hundreds of proud and grateful American volunteers.

...til they all come home
