Miami Soldier Ride

Below is the YOUTUBE link to the 2012 Miami Soldier Ride video which tells
the story of the day the Gold Coast Quilt Guild and other local guild
members presented a QUILT OF VALOR to each Soldier Ride participant at the
Miami VA Hospital before they embarked on their team bike from Miami VA to
the Florida Keys (January 12, 2012).

This  video was prepared by a Gold Coast Quilt Guild member who is gifted in
combing pictures and music and without words creates awareness of the harsh
reality of the incredible sacrifices made by these young men and women for
our freedom as they bravely face new challenges in their lives that have
been changed forever.

Please share this story with your family and friends.  Make sure your sound
is on and your tissues are nearby.


  1. Going to have to save this for another day, but I WILL watch it. Our boy deploys on Saturday. So proud. So hard.

  2. Omg ... I have had a horrible day and ya justsometimeshave to be reminded to put things into perspective and remind yourself why you do this. Thank you for sharing this. There simply aren't strong enough words to express some feeling in my heart for what our warriors do and how much they keep me inspired and proud.
