During a ceremony in the Ringgold County courtyard June 13, the Quilt of Valor Foundation recognized local veterans with special quilts to commemorate their service to their county.
Veterans honored at the ceremony included Daryl Holden, Chad L. Bounds, Elvin Swank, Orval “Butch” Black, Brad Holden, Leonard Swank, Brent Bounds, and Eric Swank.
The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to honor service members and veterans who have been touched by war with comfort and healing from the awarding of their quilts.
Since its inception in 2003, the Quilts of Valor Foundation has awarded over 302,712 quilts to American veterans.
As the quilts were delivered to each veteran, these words were spoken:
“The quilts awarded today tell you and your family the importance of your service. You gave your time away from home and family to serve part of your life as a member of the United States Armed Forces. We hope your quilt comforts and keeps and gives you the warmth of Love when it is wrapped around you.
“We, the Quilt of Valor Foundation, wish to thank you all for your time and service. We award these Quilts and say unconditionally, Thank you for your Service and allowing us to recognize you and hoping it give you warmth and comfort.”
