The story of the blanket in the spirit of WWII, I met a gentleman whom I had the honor of meeting, he was given a blanket made of old rags which were about to be given away, so one of his aunts went on a sewing spree and sewed the blankets of various materials. When he returned from the war it was presented to him. He still has the ragged blanket, which he has cherished plans for it to be handed down to his great-great grandson, who is due to be born April 17, 2016.
