High Ground Movie Premiere - and QOV's

This last weekend was the Boulder International Film Festival and High Ground Premiered.  We were invited to the Premiere, and a few of us QOV people met up!! It was a blast - and an incredible movie... I will keep promoting it until it comes out on the big screen - so please pass this on!!!


Before the premiere, my son and I were invited to head up to the studios and meet with the Veterans that were able to make the premiere - Oh My Gosh!!! That was wonderful....


My son is a little interested in film making, so he got to meet up with the producers and director, and meet a big Hollywood famous person - and it was WAY COOL!!


The absolute best part was being able to present Quilts of Valor to the Vets!  We took pictures with our phone, and I am hoping to get better ones... but here are a few to make you as excited as we were!!



This is Chad B!  He is awesome!! But more importantly He LOVE his quilt!!! I believe it was made by Ila... in the below picture - that is Steve B looking over his shoulder. Funny thing about Steve B.... he is blind... but I don't think that you would really know it....

This is Ashley - the Quilt she recieved is from the Ft Morgan Quilters - Susan and her crew worked on this one. AND!!! It was her favorite colors.... amazing. Ashley is a Helicopter Mechanic.... when they ran out of tin - she patched up a helicopter with a coke can.  A female MacGuyver I tell ya!!



This is Chad J - I love him!!  I am going to visit him, because - are you ready for this?  Sit down. His girlfriend ... is a chocolateer.... seriously - Its Kizmet - I am meant to visit - right ( I mean that's not weird is it?)



I am going to leave you hanging there with the QOV presentations ... so you just have to COME BACK (tee hee)


Oh - and this is Becky, Terry and Caroleann - they are some of the other QOV'ers We met up with!  They are the best - I had so much fun talking with them. Face to Face is SO much better than emails !! Really!!

I just watched the movie trailer. This movie is going to help change perspectives to be sure. Can't wait to see it. So glad you were able to represent QOV.
