Nice. A positive thing. Not over-thought or heavy. Just what is needed and more importantly from the heart. Cheers for Carol Davis!

somehow I can't visualize our defense department playing with dolls on the battlefield.

I send chocolate, gum, chips, cookies instead.

It's sad that our guys and gals are stressed out enough to need these, I hope they come home soon...

My grandmother called them "whammie dolls". They are great stress relievers.

The thought is great, and I support her intentions. That said, the only 'dolls' I'd be thinking about (if I was over there) wear shirts that say H00TERS on them. Wait, I'm not over there, and I AM thinking about them.

I have one that my mother made for me. We called them Damit Dolls. The story says they are being well recieved. Just goes to show that not everyone thinks the same. Just because you would not want one does not mean others would not. Thank you Carol Davis for all you do. You rock!

I have a "Damnit Doll" but can't say as my man would want me to send one to Iraq, he'd think I gone mad!
