QOV For A Tank Commander

Charles Shepard, 92, who served in Italy as a tank commander in WWII and then in Korea before leaving the US Army, was recently awarded his QOV. 

Mr. Shepard, a West Virginia resident, was awarded his quilt by QOVF representative Gale Betterly of Ridgefield, OH (on the right).  His daughter, Sharon Cole, nominated him for the honor.   Fay Gandee, maker of the quilt is standing next to Mr. Shepard.  QOVF is honored and privileged to have made his day special. 


  1. Congratulations, Mr. Shepard!! Your smile is exactly as it was when you were in the service!! :-))

  2. WOW! What a wonderful story about a 'good lookin' tank commander ;-) Thank YOU, sir for you sacrifice and service for our country.
