Quilt of Valor recipient touched by gift
I received an absolutely beautiful handmade Quilt of Valor with a matching pillowcase for my service in Korea. I am 85 years old and it brought tears to my eyes.
The Quilt of Valor project has been going on for many years and has provided over 400 service members with quilts.
Jeannie S. from Vernon pieced my quilt together and Rene D. from Norwich sewed the binding. I wanted to recognize this group for all that they do to honor and remember the service of all veterans here in Connecticut.
A special acknowledgement to Patrick McMahon. He arranged this ceremony to recognize my time serving in the United States Air Force.
God Bless America!
