The article features Jean Wright, a U.S. Army Developmental Test Command employee at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. As an enthusiastic quilt maker for about 25 years, she gave two of her creations to young soldiers recuperating from amputations at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The idea of giving quilts to soldiers came when she met retired master sergeant Ralph Ross who lost a arm in Somalia in 1993.
