Are you still doing this? I donate baby knitted items to the USO in Dallas Ft. Worth Airport. My friend volunteers there and they have a 'gifts' box that the troups can choose items from while they are waiting to catch their flight to the war. The USO will send them to their families. They also let the Dads tape themselves reading a child's story and include the tape. We heard back from one Mom who received a package and her husband was killed. The tape will be nice when his baby is older. Let me know and you can mail the caps to me and I will take them to the USO for the soldiers if you haven't found a source yet.
