An email received from one our Regional Coordinators"
"During my tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, I
have heard about the Quilt of Valor from one of the soldiers that was
assigned to one of the Marine units and I have always thought that this
was a wonderful idea and a huge comfort for those who have served. As a
veteran, I never thought about the sacrifices that I have done; other
than it was my duty and mission to get it done and remembering those
fallen angels whom have given their lives for the freedom that I now
enjoy. Not a moment that goes by that I think about the lives of my men
and those that I was so close to and it's hard to not take it
personal. My mere words can only express my gratitude to you and the
women who will put my quilt together but I hope to meet these gentle
angels in person and to personally thank each of them for the labor of
love, time and energy into each of the many quilts that they have
prepared for so many veterans."
