Warm welcome into the world
Knit hats rest on a table on Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, Jan. 21, 2016. Senior Airmen Chey Weaver and Rebekah Sparks, both members of the 47th Medical Support Squadron, started the Heartstrings program with the hopes of giving back to the community while teaching a useful skill to fellow comrades. During their Heartstrings “lunch-n-loom” sessions, Weaver and Sparks teach attendees to crochet knit baby hats and donate the hand-made knit hats to the Val Verde Regional Medical Center, a local hospital, and local clinics for newborn babies.
