My name is William B and I received a quilt of valor in July at the Fort Collins, Colorado vet center. I'm an Army Infantry veteran of the Afghanistan war and I just wanted to send a brief e-mail thanking your organization for my quilt and for what you do. My wife and I were incredibly touched by your patriotism and commitment to veterans. When I first heard from the vet center that we would be visited by quilts of valor, I had no idea that I would be receiving such a beautiful quilt. The quilt I received said it was pieced by Valerie E. in Corona, California and quilted by Ron O. in New Mexico. If possible, could you forward my e-mail to them to express my appreciation? Thank you for your organization's dedication to this country and it's veterans. In closing, I ask you to never forget how much of a difference you make to veterans.
Good Morning Quilters -
I don't know if that gets you inspired, but it sure inspires me!! Plus I met the young gentleman and got a lesson in Geography. I will reiterate one more time - I AM geographically challenged, so I did learn something. And I now know the exact territory he was in!!

This great quilt was pieced by Pat J in New Mexico and quilted by Linda B of Colorado.
