Music and Quilts - A Comforting Combination

From Lincoln, Nebraska

At the Coffeehaus (Lincoln Veterans Center) monthly musical gathering, veterans sang and performed for others in attendance. This is a volunteer band that believes music helps veterans express themselves and heals the heart. Members of our QOV Quilter's Group were invited to this gathering and were delighted to be a part of the audience listening to their musical talents. They were fantastic.

Two veterans were selected to receive a Quilts of Valor in honor of their service and sacrifice to country. First was Gregory H.  who served in the Army, 5th Battalion 7th Cavalry Division in VietNam.  Second was Jim T., a Navy Seabee who also served during the VietNam War.  Gentlemen, we salute you!
