We need your help.
Each service member working in the Dover Air Force Base Mortuary receives a much deserved Quilt of Valor at the end of their rotation. These are very special people who deal with the fallen and their families on a daily basis. To say it is a stressful job is an understatement.
With 3 weeks notice, we recently were able to provide 42 Quilts of Valor for the last rotation but this has depleted our supply of QOVs. We are frantically piecing tops in order to meet their future needs. Another 15 QOVs will be needed by the middle of October and again in November as there is a continuous rotation of personnel due to the stressful nature of the job.
Please consider making a QOV or several 12 inch blocks in two colors- either red and white or blue and white. The tops and blocks should be sent to:
QOVF, P.O. Box 1003, Seaford, DE 19973
Thank you for any help you are able to provide. It is greatly appreciated.

Visit this site to get an idea of some of what they are dealing with during their rotations. The human cost of these conflicts is made VERY real to them: http://cryptome.quintessenz.at/mirror/dignified-dead/dignified-dead.htm
