From Oregon

Monday February 25, our VFW had it's monthly family dinner and I had the priviledge of presenting a Quilt of Valor to a Korean War Vet. This was especially good as Chris has never had anyone say thank-you to him and has also just been diagnosed with cancer and is almost 90 years old.

Our President of the VFW Post, Ray, helped to present the quilt and Chris was given a resounding round of applause and many thank-yous. I was accused of pinching him as I wrapped him in his quilt and the tears began to fall, that is why his head is bowed and I swear I did not pinch him and my own tears were right there with his.
