Sgt Johansen is a double amputee, and this house was AWESOME! We got the grand tour, and it is so accessible for their family - it was cool, and was built as an energy saving house, meaning they should literally have no utility bills for the life of the house.
So cool - and you know - he had not recieved a Quilt of Valor in his time at Walter Reed. The Blue Star moms found this out - so guess what I brought?
This ceremony was pretty cool. The Local High School band came, the fire trucks and police had a parade with the Patriot Riders in attendance. My son was an Honorary Patriot Rider. He got to hold one of the flags!
This is the driveway that everyone will come through.
Cool dude huh? He learned that you only hold the flag with your right hand. And these Patriot Riders were SO COOL!
Here is the start of the parade coming towards the house.
This is Sgt Johansenn and his wife, 3 month old son, and his dog is in there somewhere!
The Patriot Riders.
The picture is a little fuzzy - but this is the Quilt of Valor we gave to them ( "We" meaning all you great QOV makers) This QOV was made by Beryl in UT, and it is appropriately named "Purple Mountain Majesty" especially since from their new backyard you can see Pikes Peak!
