Quilts of Valor presented at Upper Midwest Show in Oconomowoc, WI
On August 1 and 2, 2012, a total of 14 QOV were presented to 12 Viet Nam vets, 1 Iraq vet, and 1 WWII vet at the MQT Upper Midwest show held at the Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc, WI. The show was opened with a color guard of Viet Nam vets who were welcomed home by Jim Simons, show manager and QOV recipient.
At the Thursday night event, more Viet Nam vets, including my brother, were honored along with our mobile cam operator, an Iraq vet, and two were presented in absentia to a 100 year old WWII vet and another Viet Nam vet.
