SkypeR Connects Quilts of Valor, Mother and Son

For each of us - we sew and Quilt to Honor and Comfort those service member
and veterans touched by war. As many know, when a loved one goes to war, so does the family.  The family, this Nation and the QOV family consider those that serve to protect and defend us  - our Heroes.

Marcella Pirner-Cormier, Destination Coordinator, Quilts of Valor
Foundation, handles QOV requests, both nationally and for those that are
down-range. Marcella forwarded a request from Cindi in Knoxville, TN for her
son Kyle.

Kyle, a USAF Intelligence Technician, on second deployment had an
opportunity to stand up a new Intel system.  His first child was due any

Kyle knew the vital mission the system served and was torn between staying
behind or ensuring the system was deployed to meet the mission.  He told
Cindi "Mom, I will make a difference; maybe I can save some lives". Cindi
said "I believe he did".

Kyle's son arrived 7 days before he left for the war front. Cindi said of
her son Kyle, "He is my hero" and to the Quilts of Valor Foundation "Thank
you for all you do."

Cindi - From all of us at QOVF - "Thank you for your family's service and
sacrifice for all of us".

And speaking of technology - for this presentation, it was the first known
SkypeR of a QOV Presentation!

Thank you Rachael!

Honor and Comfort was served at 6:00 PM
