Love for wounded warriors by Bobbye Porter

SAN ANTONIO — It all began with a visit to SAMMC in the late spring of 2011. We noticed that some of the wounded warriors seemed cold, sitting in their wheelchairs. A group of knitters and crocheters was organized and the eager crafters began meeting at San Pedro on Sunday afternoons. They ranged in age from 9 to 75 years.

Although the group has diminished in size, it has not deterred these women (and one brave man) from continuing on in this good work. Since that time in 2011, over 500 hand-made lap robes (afghans) have been lovingly made for our wounded soldiers at the Warrior Family Support Center at Fort Sam Houston, Audie Murphy VA Hospital and the Kerrville VA Hospital.

The work continues with no end in sight.
