    Our school has only done this program for two years. It is fairly new to Kansas. The kids act as chaperones for the adults, they carry suitcases, push wheelchairs, get drinks provide any services the veterans need. The Veterans, kids and teachers fly commercial, stay at a local dc motel, and then tour the memorials. The trip lasts a long weekend. Most of the veterans would never be able to do a trip like this without the kids to help them. The friendships formed between the kids and the veterans are incredible, plus the kids get first hand storied of what it was like to serve in WWII. What a great lesson in patriotism.

    Both of your quilts are beautiful!! How very sweet of you to donate the patriotic quilt for such a wonderful cause. It is so good to see the older and younger generation interacting together in such a hartwarming way :-D
    The kids will have memories to last a lifetime and this may be the last memory the Vets experience.
