|An "Honor Quilt" made by Sandy Tuzinski of|
There are storerooms full of quilts at the VA that have yet to be distributed. Although this has become somewhat of a logistical problem for the VA staff, I think it serves as evidence that Minnesotans are a caring group of people. Don’t ya know? (Sorry I couldn’t resist a Minnesota dialect impersonation)
I think it is wonderful what these quilters are doing for veterans. What is more heartwarming than a handmade blanket made by people who care? I received a similar quilt in California. It was a patchwork quilt that was beautifully made and on the back of it, the quilters signed their names and wrote the city that they are from. I was very appreciative to receive this item and was moved by the idea of it.
Hopefully, the VA can find a way to get these quilts out to the veterans that would enjoy them.
