Honoring Veterans at Westmont of Cypress

The eighteen veterans along with their families were treated to a special honor at Westmont of Cypress and it wasn’t on a national holiday. That didn’t stop the Westmont of Cypress staff from asking Chaplain Doreen Matsumoto, who conducts a weekly bible study, if she could coordinate a special commemoration for the residents who were veterans. Matsumoto is a member of the American Veterans Assistance Group who coordinated this with Quilts of Valor. According to the Quilts of Valor website, their quilts are to be awarded to a service member or veteran who has been touched by war to thank them for their service and sacrifice in serving our nation. On each of the quilts there is a number along with the names and location of all individuals that worked on the quilt. Each Westmont of Cypress veteran who received a quilt was wrapped with love by having the quilt placed over them at the time of presentation. The event was a rousing success. Members of Cottonwood Church in Los Alamitos provided refreshments. A big bonus is that our program was highlighted the winter issue of the American Veterans Assistance Group Magazine. We love our veterans!
