More than 108,000 QOV quilts made since 2003.
Recently, two veterans were presented with Quilts of Valor by the Smoky Mountain Quilters Guild and Susan Gordon, executive director of the Quilts of Valor Foundation.
Ed Holcomb was honored for his Army service in Vietnam and Susan Jones was honored for her Air Force service as an Operating Nurse in Iraq. Both quilts were made by members of the Quilts of Valor Bee of the Guild, and made with patriotic colors. Both recipients were visibly moved as the quilts were wrapped around them in the final minutes of the presentation. The act of wrapping a recipient in their quilt symbolizes the respect, care, and love that the quilters feel for the servicemen and women to whom these quilts are presented.
