On the home front

Today’s Star Tribune carries another great Katherine Kersten column: “Helping the wounded with needle and thread.” The column is about a group of volunteers allied with Sew Much Comfort, which is run from Minnesota. This is a bunch of women — from all over the country — who sew “adaptive” clothes for soldiers who have been seriously injured in Iraq. Often, these soldiers, who may have lost limbs, have nothing to wear to their Purple Heart ceremonies but drafty, undignified hospital gowns. “Sew Much Comfort” tries to provide them clothing that may help afford a sense of dignity and self-sufficiency as they recover from their wounds and reenter the larger world.
