More than 20 servicemembers were presented Quilts of Valor at Lyster Army Health Clinic at Fort Rucker, Alabama, on  May 26, 2011.

Quilts of Valor Foundation, has presented thousands of quilts to those “touched by war.” Through the recent support of fabric companies and quilt “celebrities,” QOV Foundation has garnered even greater participation from quiltmakers across the country.

Quilts of Valor is just one of hundreds of quilt guild, local, and national grassroots organizations that, since 2001, have made quilts to honor and comfort soldiers and their families. Creative Commons license
