Lewis and Clark Quilts of Valor

Lewis-Clark Quilts of Valor presented 6 Quilts of Valor at the monthly
Marine Corps League meeting. One of the recipients was Sharon, now
retired, who was both a Vietnam and Dessert Storm nurse. Sharon worked at
Walter Reed and seen the importance of our quilts. She was deeply touch to
receive her quilt.

Stan had the honor of receiving an Al Lind quilt. It was fitting for one
of members of this League to receive such a special quilt. Most of the men
in this group are Vietnam Veterans. They are a very active group in our
local community. I find it uplifting to see men, as deeply wounded as they
have been, continuing to serve their fellow man with malice towards none.
They were the first to step forward and help with our QOV fundraising

I was honored, following the presentation, to be asked, along with my
husband, to be their Guest of Honor at their annual Marine Corps Ball this
year. It was my turn to melt into a puddle of tears before them. I love
these guys (gals).

  1. Hi all! :)

    I am staying with my brother and his wife while my husband is deployed in Afghanistan. I was cleaning my brothers garage space when I found a neatly folded and wrapped, quilt that was made by the Lewis-Clark Quilts of Valor. :)

    I think it is a beautiful quilt! I would love to have one sent to my husband while he is gone.
    My husband is Corporal Brian Roberts, he is in the Active Duty Army, we are stationed in Fort Hood, TX, even though at this time I am living in NV, for support from my family. :)
    I know that my husband would use his quilt every day while he is deployed! When my husband returns home to me, I know that he will take great care of it, just as my brother does. In fact, I would keep it on our bed, as a reminder of our first deployment together, and how we made it through. :)

    My address while I am in NV is:
    3421 Ridgecrest Dr. Reno, NV 89512

    My email address is:

    I can provide my husbands mailing address in Afghanistan, if I am personally contacted. :)

    Thank you for taking the time to read my comment! I hope that you are all still doing quilts for the active duty military personnel that are serving deployments over seas. :)

    Very Respectfully,
    Mrs. Trish Roberts :)
