Hand-Sewn Blankets for New Moms

Rita Medlin, Women Veterans Program Manager, wanted to do something special for the female Veterans who are receiving maternity care through non-VA care providers. She reached out at a Veterans Service Organization meeting and the Soldiers’ Angels organization made contact and were asked if they could do something to make our VA mothers feel recognized and special. Soliders’ Angels was delighted to make crocheted baby blankets for our new babies born through this VA program. Sarah Ann Behtz, Soldiers’ Angels program volunteer, is shown giving new blankets to Rita Medlin, Women Veterans Program Manager.
