Two organizations teamed up Saturday with a common goal, to support and honor our veterans.

The Quilt of Valor Foundation is a national organization that covers men and women who have faced combat while serving their country with comforting and healing quilts. They made a special presentation Saturday to support local service members.

The statement released by the foundation said, "I would like to thank you on behalf of all Americans for your service, sacrifice and valor to our country. Thank you for putting yourself in harms way. We can all go to sleep safe in our beds at night. So I would like to thank you on behalf of all American citizens."

The Quilt of Valor Foundation and the Millennium Quilters Guild joined forces to cover the Bridgeport Conference Center with vibrant quilts of all shapes and sizes.

"As quilters we want the world to know how important it is as part of our history and how important it is for us today. The pleasure we get from making them, giving them, and showing them. We just want people to know about them," said Pat Gray, the co-chair of the Millennium Quilters.

Hundreds of quilts were on display and judged in several categories and placed first through third. They hosted hundreds of people at the event between Friday and Saturday.
