National Quilting Day - Let's Roll (National Capital Area)

Let’s Roll
Inspired by Todd Beamer’s final words on September 11, Flight 93, "Are you guys ready? Okay, let’s roll!” the words have become a rallying cause for both Patriots serving down-range and those that support them world-wide.

On National Quilting Day, Captain Baker was honored during a presentation of his Quilt of Valor, by the MSP Quilting Angels, Germantown, MD.

CPT Baker recalled his time in Kuwait at Camp 93, located just south of the Iraq/Kuwait border – whose motto was “Let’s Roll”. “I was awestruck”, CPT Baker said after the presentation, “looking over the many pieces that make up my Quilt of Valor and I saw those words that mean so much to me and the men I served with at Camp 93– “Let’s Roll”. I am truly touched by this recognition of my service and deeply touched”.
