Fort Hood Quilt

This will be in the mail tomorrow morning.  The quilt is being sent from my son's medical unit for one of those injured last week.

This is sent with our hopes for a speedy recovery and a reminder of the Army family.

Fort Hood quilts

I am an Army mother.  My son is a captain in the Army reserves which makes my whole family part of the Army family.  If you have not read the request for quilts, I am including the message posted on Cherry House quilts (

By know, I am sure the entire world is aware of the tragedy at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. My son is Spc. Luke House, command executive assistant, STB, III Corp, at Fort Hood, and was working yesterday when the horrible events transpired. I thank God with all my heart that he was not harmed or injured, but I am so saddened about the lives that will be forever devastated by what happened.

What can we do to help? Quilts. We can comfort them with quilt.

I would like to gather 31 quilts to provide for the soldiers that were wounded yesterday. Currently the wounded are divided between three hospitals in the Fort Hood/Killeen areas.

Would you help? Do you have a quilt to spare?

If you do, please leave a comment, or email me at cherryhousequilts at gmail dot com

I would like to do this as soon as possible...I will provide an address to ship the quilts to, and we will get them to the Fort Hood Chaplain, who will deliver these to the wounded in the hospitals.

Thank you,


I am in the process of making a quilt to send in the name of my son's unit... if you are interested, go to Cherri's blog and let her know.  She will send you the address of the contact at Fort Hood.
