Attention: We need your help collecting brand new, inspection-grade camouflage (“cami”) blouses.
At MarineParents, supporting the troops in whatever way possible is our number one objective. So, when the Marine Liaison Office at WRNMMC identified a need for adaptive cami blouses to allow Purple Heart recipients still in the hospital the dignity of being dressed in uniform for their Purple Heart award ceremony, MarineParents and our volunteers didn’t hesitate to step in and help.
After the blouses are collected, they will be sent to a seamstress who will modify them with Velcro (instead of buttons and zippers) so that they can easily be put on a patient who is confined to bed. Though it may not seem like much, having the chance to get dressed and be in uniform for the ceremony is something that will be greatly appreciated by our injured, ill, and wounded troops.
If you are unable to send a cami blouse but would still like to contribute to this cause, you can click here to donate to Purple Heart Hero Support. We will be using monetary donations to purchase Marine Corps chevrons to ensure that each Marine's "uniform" is as complete as possible.
YOU can help!
Step 1: See our lists below to determine what size/s and type/s (desert or woodland) blouses we still need.
Setp 2: Contact us or ship your blouse/s to us!
You can contact us with questions and/or to let us know what size and type of blouse you will ship to us for this adapted uniform project.
