Many soldiers come home with mental health issues and symptoms of stress (PTSD) after a traumatic event like war, assault, or disaster. Some have been broken physically with injuries sustained in combat. Some didn't come home.
Many will face and overcome challenges; showing our support will aide in their healing. I wanted to title the quilt as such in honor of soldiers; honor them because of who they were, who they are and who they will become.
There are many wonderful programs to support American Troops, You can find some below and many others in your own community.
Wounded Warrior Project
Disabled American Veterans
Operation Jackon County Veterans
