When the owner (now retired) Pete Mancuso, a Marine who served in Vietnam at the same time as Les Page, first learned of the QOVF Mission he invited QOVF to set up a booth (no charge ad prime location) at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest.

That has continued since his retirement and his brother and partner, Dave Mancuso, now heads the organization. Les awarded Pete a Quilt of Valor back in 2013.
