Veterans Day 2020

Today was another different day for QOH and COVID and we did have a happy day.  I belong to the organization Taps for Veterans.  They help find buglers for live Taps at funerals and different military functions.  Their event this year was to sound taps at 11:00 on the 11th all around the United States.  I asked my veteran brother, Lou, to help me plan and the next thing I knew we had an American Legion 102 Honor Guard and it was advertised in the Valley Springs News.

Since it was Veterans Day, we couldn’t go without awarding some Quilts of Honor.  We surprised all three Navy recipients.  Our first was Dave, our Honor Guard Commander, a Navy pilot.  First thing he said was that he wished his wife was here.  The next two Navy veterans were married to each other, both now retired.  The wife said we could have given one per family and I told her it is one per veteran and she was a veteran and she replied, “Yes Ma’am.”  Made me laugh. 

We were all outside on a sunny and crisp day with our masks and thankful to be together.  Lou had all the veterans come forward and tell a little about themselves.  The hardest part of the day was Flo trying to video Taps but she actually accomplished her mission which you will hear at the end of this blog.

Taps is for all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.  May we never forget the price of freedom.

To all our QOH Chapters out there, please stay well and keep on stitchin. 

Until next time . . . . . . .
God’s Blessings,
Gail
