26135Re: Great idea to support our troops

This is a fantastic idea. It would be great if every IDOS and LSDOS
Chapter could get their members to sign a block each time they have a
DOG. You could get enough blocks from them to complete a quilt.
And to answer the unspoken question, no, this group is not becomming
political. This is not politics. This is a new way to spread the
word about Dutch Oven cooking. One thing our men and women overseas
miss is good home cooked meals. If this is successful, some of them
might take the time to look us up when they do return home.
