    I was the POW/MIA coordinator for the Officers' Wives' Club during the Vietnam War, so this touches me very deeply. Thank you so very much for doing this. Those men deserve every bit of gratitude we can bestow upon them, and this is certainly a beautiful expression of that.

    Where did you get the fabric?

    The fabric is called "Defenders of Freedom". I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago but i think it is still available. Can't remember where in particular I got it. It is a pillowcase panel's

    Sewflower, I love your wall hanging. I'm a member of the Society of Military Widows, so it really touched my heart. God bless you and bring you peace. Thank you so much for remembering our veterans.

    As the wife of a VietNam veteran who came back safely, I applaud your effort in this moving tribute.
