Mrs. Nancy Van Apeldoorn coordinates volunteers for "Lap Robes for Veterans" a group that normally donates to Veterans in Hospice and Nursing Homes. They make an extra effort and spend much of their own funds to create branch specific lap robes for the Veterans taking part in Honor Flight Rochester trips to receive as part of their "Welcome Home Ceremony".

Nancy heard about Warrior Salute from some of our Veterans and staff at a Red Wings game. She was touched - she has dealt with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in her own family and is glad there is such a service in existence now that is helping Veterans to overcome it. Nancy took the time and effort to create this lap robe to honor The Nucor House, and has represented all military branches in it.
