Sandy Vink, right, presents a Quilt of Valor to Army National Guard member and Iraqi War veteran Don Moore.
He was surprised with the presentation Wednesday evening at Pizza Hut on 10th Street, Great Bend, by QOV members Vink, Kay Engleman and Karen Neuforth. Vink presented the quilt, which she herself had made, to Moore, who served through two tours in Iraq in 2004 and 2005. It is the mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. Since its establishment, QOV members have presented over 108,000 quilts to both veterans and active members of our nation’s military in thanks and recognition of their service.
