In case you did not see these posts to the Quilts of Valor Foundation’s Facebook page, Janice V. was able to award two Quilts of Valor in recent months.
The first was made in August to John G., who currently works with Janice. John was in the Navy and served aboard a submarine. As Janice explains:
“[Submariners are often referred to as serving in the “Quiet Service”]. The nickname is both a description of their job with a very large stealth vessel in all their missions and the fact no crew member ever boasts of what they do or did.”
Janice thinks these service members are often overlooked for a well-deserved Quilt of Valor and she was proud to award this quilt to John:
The second award that Janice made was in September to Miguel A., a member of the FL National Guard.
Miguel has already served in the Middle East (or as Janice and insiders call it “the Sandbox”) with his unit. Janice explained that Miguel is one of the special civilian soldiers that give up their personal time and lives in defense of our Country.
As an important side note, Miguel’s wife serves full-time with the FL National Guard. It is a special family that has two soldiers who serve our Nation the way they do.
WE JOIN WITH JANICE TO WISH BOTH
OF THESE GENTLEMEN WELL AND
THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR SERVICE !!
