From Down range

The above story, written by recent recipient of a Quilt of Valor, gives
insight as to the caliber of the men and women who serve to protect and
defend the United States of America (US - you and me).

God Bless and protect them all - each and every one.

Those who serve and those who served truly care...they really do!

"When you return from down range, you are required to go to the VA".

"There are lots of items they give you, welcome home packages and other
things, but one item I received was something I did not expect", "The
label read 'Quilt of Valor pieced by Joanne K, Quilted by Lynn R, MSP
Quilting Angels, Germantown, MD'".

On July 14, 2012, Joanne K was humbled to receive an expression of
gratitude from Captain Minami.

She received this recognition from someone she would never have known nor
had the opportunity to express her gratitude personally, except for a QOV
Label, with her First name, last initial and the name of the group with
whom she is a member.

The Quilt of Valor was proudly awarded at the Baltimore Veterans Affairs
Hospital by the staff.

Go figure - from down range to down home!

Welcome home fellow American, Welcome home!
