To the Editor:

It is quite something to head down to what you think is just going to be a lunch at the Monument Senior Center to celebrate Veterans Day, only to find yourself one of a group of veterans being thanked for your service by receiving a beautiful Quilt of Valor. So many ladies in our community spent countless hours making these quilts, and I feel very honored to have received one recognizing my time in the Army during the Korean conflict. I would like to congratulate all the ladies for putting on such a great event. I was proud to serve my country and was humbled to finally receive such recognition. The wonderful quilting ladies deserve appreciation, as do all the other veterans for their service to this great country of ours.
