News from Afghanistan

The first shipment of quilts made it to Afghanistan! The superintendent responsible for staging at Bagram wrote to say that they were thrilled by the quilts. He said that "They are one of the most impressive patriotic things I have seen in my 23+ years of service.

An EMT aboard one of the medi-vac planes wrote to say that he wished he had been allowed to take pictures. He said that the wounded warriors were all covered with our quilts and it was a fabulous sight to see. Several of them read the label and just smiled.

I couldn't be more thrilled. This is what it is all about.
