About

Volunteers are needed to quilt or crochet patriotic quilts, afghans or blankets for the "Final Salute" quilt, afghan or blanket. The red, white, and blue quilts, afghans or blankets are given to each Veteran upon admission so the quilt, afghan or blanket can be used to comfort them during their final days and final departure.

When the Veteran passes, the patriotic quilts, afghans or blankets are draped over the gurney as a Final Salute. As they are transported, family or anyone can offer a final salute or place their hands over their heart to show their appreciation.
