'Grateful Nation' Blanket
Donated by Robert and Karen Hodges

The fabric of our nation is woven with the sacrifices of our veterans. In recognition of selfless sacrifice, our Grateful Nation jacquard blanket honors the brave men and women who have defended freedom throughout the history of the United States of America. Each authentically colored stripe represents a ribbon awarded to veterans of historical conflicts in which our country has engaged.

~ World War II Asiatic Pacific Campaign ~
~ World War II Europe - Africa - Middle East Campaign ~
~ Korean Service ~
~ US Vietnam Service ~
~ Southwest Asia Service (Gulf War) ~
~ War on Terrorism ~

Centered on the blanket is a representation of the stars and strips of the American Flag, interpreted as a service ribbon. A total of 56 stars represent the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the five US territories. This unique blanket is an inspiration for the young soldier, a tribute to the veteran and a symbol of American national pride.
