Vietnam & Gulf War
"Awareness Quilt Project"

starline2.gif (1132 bytes)

On Memorial Day, 1998, a group called Vietnam Veterans Wives laid out a beautiful Quilt near the Reflecting Pool, near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D. C. This Quilt raises the publics' awareness of Vietnam and Gulf War veterans' health problems. These folks need more "Blocks" so that they can "cover both sides of the Reflecting Pool next year." I for one would like to see it next year.
