QUILT OF VALOR:

When you travel with D&S Travel Tours you can help us to make a tribute to one of our much-deserving Veterans. Through the Make A Quilt of Valor Foundation D&S Travel donates 5% of the gross profits of each successful voyage we travel on. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quits of Valor. For more information go to www.qovf.org.
