    Confirmed Mission: A local chapter of the Quilts of Valor Foundation has invited the PGR to participate in one of their upcoming quilt presentations.  A Quilt of Valor® (QOV) is a quality, handmade quilt that is awarded to a Service Member or Veteran who has been touched by war.  The Quilt says unequivocally, “Thank you for your service and sacrifice in serving our nation.”  At this event quilts will be awarded to six veterans.

    More information about the QOV mission can be found here: https://www.qovf.org/

    The Ghost

    Four Patriot Guard members attended the QOV, first for a flag line at the entrance before the ceremony and then to present the colors at the start of the proceedings. The members of the society were thrilled that we were in attendance. This was a fun mission and I think we all enjoyed being there. Thanks to our Flag Wrangler Max, who seemed to know everyone attending the ceremony.
