The veterans and a currently active servicewoman who received a Quilt of Valor from The Quilt Guild of Greater Houston had a myriad of assignments as they served our country: from being in charge of the communications systems in case of nuclear war during the Cold War, to serving as an embassy guard and later Air Flight Marshall, to keeping the logistics for orderly supply systems in place and making sure the military had what it needed. They served during the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
To all we give our thanks for the time they spent away from their families, for being in harms way, for they all performed for our country.
Our recipients were:
Edward Riley Pounders - Nominated by Kathy Kennedy
Kyle Geoff Harrivel - Nominated by his aunt Carol Hanley Garcia

We also donated several quilts and presentation pillowcases to the local Quilts of Valor chapter which will be awarded to veterans on their list.
