Operation Quiet Comfort was established in July of 2004 for the purpose of honoring and comforting members of the United States Armed Forces who are injured while serving in harm’s way, and to provide support to those caring for them. July 2014 marks the 10th year for the work of Operation Quiet Comfort volunteers.
In 2006 Operation Quite Comfort founder, Lori Pate, presented a Four Freedoms Gratitude Quilt to Walter Reed Medical Center and it was hung in the Occupational Therapy Clinic where many could appreciate its message.
Walter Reed has gone through many changes and is now known as the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. To honor and comfort our wounded heroes representatives from Operation Quiet Comfort, including OQC President Jan Hogg and Jan and Ken Houin from Plymouth present a new Four Freedoms Gratitude Quilt to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center that will have a block from each of the 50 states!
The presentation will be at event that will take place in the Chapel at Walter Reed from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. EST on Thursday July 17, 2014.
