Tissue Alert.... You all give me a tease that I forget to remind you to bring a tissue - so here you are ;-) Some more pictures of our presentations have been approved.... Enjoy!!
I love taking pictures outside - I think they make everyone look happier.
This dear sweet gal was having a hard time with the heat though. And she just found out she was going to be a mom, so she had a lot going on. Remember these are from the Warriors in Transition battalion.
I loved this guy - he was so funny, and was so surprised that he was able to have a quilt. I talked to him quite a bit, and he wasn't really sure that the quilt was for him, or that he didn't have to pay. He suffers from a TBI ( brain injury) and noises really bother him. Check out the quilt - Vicki do you recognize it?
This dear warrior had a thick Texas accent - and was full of words!! A lot of them don't have a lot of words to spare, so it was quite enjoyable to talk with her. She was a Blackhawk pilot - I was jealous!! ( well all except for the war thing, and the injury thing... but I was all over the flying part!!)
I am not quite sure how to describe this guy other than Totally Awesome, and totally deserving of our respect and honor!! He flew in VietNam , Desert Storm ,Iraq, and most recently flew the planes over the Waldo Canyon fire. He had patches all over his jacket, and they were SO cool - I didn't quite want to let him go, but alas, he was stronger than I.
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the recipients of your Quilts of Valor. I tell you - there is a special owner for each one of these and it is so fun to see who gets what. I still am amazed at the fact that they are so surprised that these are a gift of Thanks to them!!
