Passing the Hat for the Troops! A group in
Portsmouth, NH does this and we thought it would be nice for us to do
for the platoon we are supporting. The idea is to knit or crochet helmet
liners using wool because it is warmer, safer and less flammable. Dark
colors like green, brown, navy are good so that the caps blend in with
uniforms and dark clothing. If you know how to knit or crochet and
would like to make a helmet liner to donate to our platoon,
