In recognition of this selfless sacrifice, our Grateful Nation jacquard blanket honors the brave men and women who have defended freedom throughout the history of the United States of America. Each authentically colored stripe represents a service ribbon awarded to veterans of historical conflicts in which our country has engaged:
World War II Asiatic Pacific Campaign
World War II Europe-Africa-Middle East Campaign
US Vietnam Service
Southwest Asia Service (Gulf War)
War on Terrorism
Centered on the blanket is a representation of the stars and stripes of the American flag, interpreted as a service ribbon. A total of 56 stars represent the 50 states, the district of Columbia, and the five US territories. The unique blanket is an inspiration for the young soldier, a tribute to the veteran and a symbol of American national pride.
A donation from the sale of each blanket will be made to the Fisher House™ Foundation, which provides residences near major military and VA medical centers for the families of ill or wounded service members and veterans. Napped. Made in USA.
