Several local veterans were wrapped in Quilts of Valor recently for their meritorious service. Amy Martin, local Quilts of Valor presenter, bestowed the honors respectively to each of the men before family and friends. The quilts are pieced locally and finished by a long-arm machinist. The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a national organization founded in 2003 by “Blue Star” mom Catherine Roberts after experiencing a dream about her son. Since that dream, thousands of quilters all over the United States work daily to create quilts to cover warriors from all conflicts, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
