On another subject. Saturday was a special day for our Eastern Missouri QOV group. We were present to help welcome back the 1138th Engineer Company (Sapper) from Missouri and to present them each with a Quilt of Valor. Our trailer loaded with the quilts were escorted from Warrenton, MO by the Patriot Guards riding motorcycles all the way to the Centene Center in Farmington for the ceremony (approximately 90 miles.)
Here they are coming into the street in front of the Center, preceding the trailer.

The troops were welcomed and there were distinguished guests on the program who had a few words or a presentation to make.
Here are two soldiers with their quilts and the leaders of our QOV Chapter responsible for getting all the quilts ready for this occasion. They did not take time to display all the quilts that were given out.
Another soldier was kind enough to open his quilt for us too.
Our Mo. Chapter has presented over 1,250 quilts since it started 8 years ago. We have over 100 ladies and now 2 men who help make these one-of-a-kind quilts meeting twice a month for 10 months of the year.
