Anyways - these vets are truly deserving, and it was my priveledge to witness the reciept of these Quilts of Valor.
This particular gentleman was truly that - very gentle and kind. He really bonded with my kids, and was very gracious.
This vet was just a kid! But a neat one at that. His family was able to be with him on this day. Those are 2 of his sisters and his niece. They were SO tickled to be able to be there for the presentation. And man, the sisters were so tickled to have their brother back. 3 tours, 2 injuries.
This gentleman wanted an Air Force blanket, and he wanted it out of fleece. So he got what he wanted! ;-) I was totally tickled with this gentleman. He is a Vietnam Vet, flew in the Air Force, and now goes around the state reinacting history as a Buffalo Soldier. How cool is that? He was an honor to meet.
Hope you enjoyed seeing where a few of the Quilts of Valor went, as well as a special blanket.
