From Lincoln, Nebraska
We seldom receive acknowledgements from the recipients of our Quilts of Valor, and that is perfectly fine. We make them to comfort our vets not for personal recognition. However, Amy shared this photo of her presentation to her husband's uncle Arlen, who served in Vietnam. The QOV was a combination of signature blocks and anniversary blocks.
This is the heartwarming response she received and shared with us:
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for your wonderful work on the quilt for my brother. It brought tears to everyone's eyes. My brother never shows a lot of emotion but this was probably the most honored he has felt since he left Vietnam since they were never honored when they returned. Thank you again. You deserve a special reward for all the hard work you do for so many vets."
