Quilts honor and comfort our wounded

My name is T. I'm in the Army and was injured while serving in Iraq. I will spare the details since it is hard for me, but one of the things that makes it easier is the fine quilt you have made for me. I received it while I was in an ICU unit in Germany and it has been with me ever since. It not only keeps me warm when I'm cold, it keeps my heart warm too. I'm 24, a husband, and a father. This may seem childish, but when I get scared with the memories of war, I curl up in the quilt and everything goes away. It makes me and the hundreds of wounded Ive seen feel better knowing there are people in the states that care about us and what we do. In turn for the comfort you have made me, please accept this token of gratitude and thanks for your hard work. Take care and God bless.
