This weekend we were privileged to host a few Veterans Touched by War for a Quilt of Valor Presentation. And if I do say so myself - we showed a lot of Love!!
In my head - pictures are much better than words - so let's get to the Photos shall we?
I love the look on this Vet's face -
Totally made my day ( above)
This Gentleman blew us away with his speech
They are not required to make a speech and most rarely do - but this guy
He told us how he has so many medals and awards
and absolutely none of them were as important as this Quilt was.
To be honored by the people he was honered to serve - wow!
This one was fun - the gal in Yellow is one of our Quilters
The Vet she is hugging is her brother - awesome moment
And she also nominated her brother in law (below)
I LOVE that she wanted to wrap them in their quilts too!
And this was our surprise
His Wife and Daughter stitch with us
and we surprised him with a Quilt!!!
We also had a Husband and Wife team
She was first women to teach Marksmanship Technical School
And her husband
It was SO cool to have them both there
So come back next week
I will show you the rest of them!!
