    A quilt of valor

    Presented to Galen Courtright on Veteran's Day, he is a veteran of the army and served in the Korean war, his father, also an army veteran, served in WWII and his grandson, a marine, served in Iraq.

    The idea to use the pillow panels came from misoop.

    His great grand daughter wanted to put it on his bed right away.

    What a treasure created for this honor. He must have been elated to receive such a gift. Great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
