I am so humbled to have been given a "Quilt of Valor", made by Gloria Peck, Shawn Geist & Marilyn Hagans. This is a prestigious honor and deserving for all veterans.

I feel as if my name was moved to the top of a list to have received such an honor.

The people who put in hours of labor and love to construct these master pieces should be praised. Their time & effort to cut, piece and sew take dedicated commitment. I am sure they would accept any donations as there is always material, thread, etc. needed.
