This is an intriguing need for our wounded soldiers:  Adaptive Clothing made by Sew Much Comfort (SMC) established in 2004.   http://www.sewmuchcomfort.org/

Our Mission

To provide custom-made adaptive clothing, free of charge, to all wounded service members from current conflicts and from all branches of the military and National Guard. We wish to aide in their recovery, provide a tangible reminder of our gratitude for their sacrifice and give them an added measure of comfort, dignity and freedom as they recover from their injuries and return to everyday life. Adaptive clothing accommodates their medical devices and situations, provides ease of use, increases personal independence and minimizes the visual impact of their injuries.

•Sew Much Comfort has created adaptive clothing and comfort accessories to meet the unique needs of the wounded.  From the beginning of the design process we solicited input from the wounded and the medical staff to ensure that SMC clothing meets the broadest needs of the injured.

•Seamstresses use copyrighted patterns and instructions created by SMC to create our custom adaptive clothing.

•Sew Much Comfort provides adaptive clothing to all branches of the military and national guard serving in current conflicts.

•Sew Much Comfort is the only organization providing adaptive clothing at no cost to our wounded service members.

•Since we organized in November of 2004, SMC has provided 115,000 plus pieces of adaptive clothing to military hospitals in the United States, Germany, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Here is a Thank you Letter from a Soldier that also helps explain how they help:::::

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart

My name is Antonio. You probably don’t remember me or my story but, I remember you every time I open one of my clothes drawers. I received some of your clothes during my stay in Walter Reed Medical Center, as I was there recovering from wounds I received in Afghanistan. I was very badly wounded and your clothes with the Velcro sides allowed me to change my clothes with less pain than I would have been able to otherwise. When I left Walter Reed for Palo Alto my wife Veronica contacted your group asking for help again. I am very happy to say that your group was able to once again help me and sent me more pants, shorts, and drawers which I still use today. I just want to thank you and your group for all your help I had broken my pelvis, shattered my foot and broken both my legs. Without your fine clothes I don’t I would have been able to be dressed without being in terrible agony so I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you and the volunteers who help you do it really means a lot to me and my wife. If you can thank everyone there it would mean a whole lot to us. By the way I came though fine my pelvis was fixed, my legs healed and I lost my foot. Don’t worry about the foot though it was my left one which I never liked anyways  and  I have a prosthesis already so I am walking already. Once again thank you and keep up the good work.  ~Antonio
