QOVs in the News

451st AEW receives quilts to comfort wounded
Lt. Col. Camille Looney, 451st Expeditionary Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron CASF flight commander, said she is humbled to be a part of this process. She is also glad to have Quilts of Valor for her patients because she said it's nice to be able to send them to the plane with something to cover themselves with other than just a pair of pajamas.
"Most of the people we get through here are so critically injured that they're either unconscious or don't know what's going on, but we know what it means for them," the colonel said.

Homemade quilts warm Soldiers' hearts
“The true thanks belongs to the people who made these quilts,” said Sgt. 1st Class Gerald Bertrand. “It is really nice of them to do something like this.”
