ABILENE, Kan.| The Dwight Eisenhower Library and Museum wants to make wounded soldiers more comfortable.
The library has issued its first “Quilts of Valor” challenge. It wants quilters to stitch something together for the troops that can be displayed at the presidential library for Veteran’s Day in 2010.
Afterward, the quilts will be distributed to wounded troops.
Jan Hottman is the library staff member who is organizing the quilting project.
Hottman said quilts are a good way to show support for the wounded because of the amount of time and handwork that goes into them.
