A Veteran's Day program was held at Jennings Elementary School in Colfax, WA.
The Air Force presented the Color Guard as part of the program. Local boy
scouts were a part of the program.
Tami Drader, local LA shared the Quilts of
Valor program with those present.
She then surprised WWII Vet, Pastor Floyd
Overstreet with a QOV for his service. He served on a minesweeper during WWII.
His ship was getting ready to get underway, when he was told he was on the wrong
ship. He had been transferred to the Admiral's ship.
He got off the
minesweeper and sailed out on the Admiral's ship. The minesweeper he had been
on was blown up. All his buddies died that day. He feels God had a plan for
his life as he has lived a life of serving others.
