We are now in Midwestern City, OK for the night.  We met some friends of my brothers and had a great dinner, and the Heard family treated us.  Its now 10:30 and we finally got to watch the video. My brother Russ took most of those pictures he had my camera, and catherines.  What kat and pauline did was bring the feeling of the Purple Heart Ceremony alive and made it as special as that day was. I hope to watch it again and reflect on what this Quilt of Valor Foundation has accomplished. I think if you ever had a doubt about giving or being involved with QOV, looking at those faces Of Marines receiving those quilts answers it all.  Stay tuned on the road again.  -G
