    I made this for my grandson that is graduating High School. He has enlisted in the Marines as did his two older brothers.

    He will have time to use it because his ship date is not until March. He is enrolling in college to get some credits before going.

    I should have added that the pattern is Warm Wishes. This is a very fast put-together.

    Good for him. With the proper education, he could possibly become a "Mustang". In Marine talk, this is an enlisted member who works his/her self up to Officer ranking.

    Please let him know that a lot of real Americans truly do appreciate his work and his willing to fight for America. You must be very proud of him.

    As a mom of a Marine, this quilt is a winner! A beautiful quilt in honor of a special young man!

    That is wonderful. I hope it brings him some comfort when he is away from home.

    Hugs
