What better way of showing appreciation to veterans, than giving them a gift of love that was made from the heart to show them respect and honor for the sacrifices they have made for their country?
This is what happen to 13 Barton County veterans on Wednesday at the VFW Post 3111 in Great Bend.
These 13 veterans received quilts from the Quilts of Valor Greater Wichita Area Chapter.
The presentation was part of the VFW Post 3111 Veterans Day celebration. After the presentation, veterans and family members had the opportunity to mingle and enjoy a pot luck dinner.
Sandy Vink of Great Bend, Shannon Royer of Otis and Lynnae Bryant from Great Bend are members of the Quilts of Valor Greater Wichita Area Chapter and were the presenters of the quilts.
