18 QOV's for 18 Korean War Vets

In October of 2013, 136 Korean War veterans made the Honor Flight from Omaha to Washington, D.C. where they were escorted around numerous War Memorials. Sara Kenny, our Nebraska Volunteer Coordinator, was later contacted and asked if we could supply Quilts of Valor to all 136 of these wonderful vets, and she said "yes!"
A number of quilts were made by 4-H kids of York, Nebraska, and the rest by the Lincoln QOV Group and Lincoln Quilters Guild. Today 18 of the Korean War Vets of Lancaster county were presented with their Quilts of Valor. 

With the help of the Veterans Service Office many of the other Korean War vets throughout the state were awarded their Quilts of Valor. 
It was an honor to commemorate the service of these brave men.
