When my husband was deployed in 2003 to Iraq, I made this service star quilt. I never hung it in the window or the door as was traditional due to feeling very vulnerable with him being gone and having my family to take care of. When he was deployed again in 2006, I still felt vulnerable. So it still went unhung. To all our men and women in the armed forces who continually watch over our country and serve, I say thank you. To all of the families of military, thank you for supporting your soldier. Thank you for bearing the scars of both mental and physical for our freedom. Freedom comes with a heavy price tag. Thank a veteran today!!
