Great story and a great idea! I have seen some footage of soldiers coming home and being freeted by their families and their kids don't seem to recognize them.

SUCH a cool idea!

I knew about Flat Stanley, but this concept never crossed my mind.
I'm jealous wishin' I'da thunk of it ;)

Nevertheless, Fantastic!

A very touching story. My husband is deployed and we too have a two year old son. We look and pictures and talk about daddy daily but how neat to have a life size daddy! My heart goes out to this woman, she is living my worst nightmare and giving back to a cause that helped her. God bless her and her two beautiful children; their daddy died a hero!

Considering the daily trash that passes the airwaves this certainly is a refreshing story and as things should be! Kudos to all involved and to the military Mom and kids that lost Dad... God bless and keep you. You are ALL heroes to the N-th degree. Stay strong and never let the little ones forget Dad was a HERO. You are in my prayers.
