Caps for Soldiers continues to give back


PENNOCK — One soldier in Afghanistan believes it saved his life.

He wore two of the wool caps on a very cold day. He’s convinced the thickness of the caps lifted his helmet just enough.  The sniper’s bullet was deflected.

Other thank you notes come without dramatic stories like this, but speak directly to their purpose. The hand-knit, wool caps are appreciated for the warmth they provide and especially, for the thought behind them.
