National Guard Baby Shower — LINK to online article & video.

Aug 9, 2014__TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) — An emotional baby-shower for some military moms to be. The event — hosted by the Women of Quail Creek.

All the women got a handmade quilt — baby clothing — diapers — and more. Seven of the moms to be are currently serving in the National Guard — the others have husbands who are away.

“That’s really generous, that’s really nice that they come together for the community and support us that way,” said Melissa Ortiz Military, a  mom of 3.

“It makes me feel really good. It’s a lot of help — it’s make us feel appreciated, I guess,” said Angelica Talavera, who is a mom and a National Guard member along with her husband.

Quail Creek residents — a lot of them vietnam-era vets — said the cause is near and dear to them. Many recall how poorly returning vets were once treated  and don’t want the current generation of military families to feel unappreciated.
