The BolaWrap’s cord is meant to wrap around the subject’s legs or arms. Once the cord is fully wrapped, two barbed anchors on each end secure the wrap into the person’s clothing, thus restraining them.

Just as his Quilt of Valor gave him a big and comforting “welcome home hug,” veteran Jeff Stubbs gave QOV coordinator Sue Lynch a heartfelt squeeze in appreciation for her efforts.

Sue Tiller proudly accepts her “award” from quilters Maureen Wentz-Walters and Rhonda Cerven.

Sue Lynch has been tirelessly working to award veterans with Quilts of Valor for years. Last week was a special moment for her as she gave quilts to twin brothers Denny and Dan Reiger, who she grew up near.

Penny Remz receives her red, white and blue Quilt of Valor from Maureen Wentz-Walters, while her husband and fellow veteran Harry Remz applauds.

This gorgeous and patriotic quilt was awarded to Nancy Eastman.
