I made this quilt during our son's last deployment. He is an EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) tech and a big supporter of the Annual EOD Memorial Fundraiser. While making this, I assumed that it would be donated to that good cause as a raffle item. But my wonderful group of quilting friends suggested I give it to him as a gift, then leave it up to him. He surprised me by deciding to keep it for himself and has it hanging in his office on base.
