A Day To Remember

On September 8, 2013, at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in White River, Vermont, my Dad (Conception Conti) was awarded a Quilt of Valor.   

I want to relay to your team how much this meant to him, and his family. Dad is 92 years old and still relives his days in the War;” memories that can’t be erased from his mind (both the good and the bad).   

This is an incredibly thoughtful program and the ceremony at the VA Facility was very well done. The Rolling Thunder folks met us at the driveway, parked our car and provided escorts and wheel chairs for both of my parents.  WOW, I was stressing about how I was going to get both of them from the parking lot into the facility.  Once inside the team waited on them like royalty; which was especially great for my socially needy father.  And the quilts were all very beautiful; clearly works of love. My parents have their quilt displayed proudly in the living room and not one visitor is spared the viewing and story of this exceptional event  :-)

Although we have no idea who made it, they will always remain special in the memory of our family.  This quilt will be passed down to the younger generation.

Please express our appreciation to the QOV team for their loving work.
