Quiltsmartie Sue contacted us last month to delivery the news that her Quilt of Valor quilt will be presented to a very deserving WWII vet on July 4th, 2015. Fittingly, Independence Day!
Sue told us she felt passionate about making her quilt for a submariner in honor of her dad who served on submarines for 26 years. According to Sue, the submariners are called the Silent Service as they don't receive many medals or recognition. During WWII 52 submarines were lost at sea leaving 3600 men who are considered to be on "Eternal Patrol. "I just felt those few WWII sub vets deserve recognition." Stated Sue in her email to Quiltsmart.
You can read more about Sue and her Quilt of Valor in this article from the Enid News, or by reading this article about the Quilts of Valor at the Muskogee Memorial Park.
The Quilts of Valor program is dedicated to helping our veterans feel wrapped in the warm and love that is provided by a handmade quilt. Find out more about the Quilts of Valor program and how you can participate.
