We had two Veterans visit us on our sew day at Sew Vac, Ltd in Long Beach to receive their quilts. Here is Ray Castaneda with his wife and some of our volunteer quilt makers.

Then we had Dr Mort Chase, his wife, daughter and grandson visit. Mort was a high school dropout who enlisted during WW11. He was a gunner. When he got our, he went back to school, graduated, and became a pathologist.
