    I know this doesn't really have anything to do with quilting, but I would like to offer a moment, or two... or several? for all troops in harms way, and a reflection for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. And kudos to all those who make quilts, pillows, or anything else for those serving, and those recovering from wounds of war.

    and a special thank you to the families of those brave men and women, who stand behind their soldier and make sure that they have a safe stable home to come back to.

    My daughter is a US Army Soldier and during high school she ran the Soldiers Angels club at school. Its easy to google search and you can sign up for your own soldier to send mail and packages to overseas so they get a bit of something from home. The gifts are always appreciated and can be extremely simple (ie gum and candy US oh my how much they love that.. magazines.. your current issues of stuff young folk like to read).. and thank you for acknowledging all they do. I am grateful for the extreme gift they have given in the name of our Country. We decorate to the max for Veterans day, three generations of uniforms hang proudly on the wall along with flags and banners.

    Thanks for starting this thread. Being a daughter of a retired Air Force dad who served in Viet Nam the American soldier always has a special place in my heart for all the sacrifice for those of us at home so that we can remain a free country. May GOD wrap them and their families with HIS love and keep them all safe.

    My gf posted this link on her FB page....have your tissues handy. It is a Canadian clip, but it really doesn't matter what country we live in...the message is the same.
