LOCAL VETERANS HONORED WITH QUILTS
Ruth and Roger Dousay were awarded Quilts of Valor® through the Montgomery Lone Star Quilts of Valor® group at Timberwood Nursing Home in Livingston on April 13. Both Ruth and Roger served in the Navy during the Vietnam War era. Ruth served in the Navy from 1973 and retired in 1989 and Roger served from 1965-1986. The Montgomery Lone Star Quilts of Valor® group wanted to do this to show their appreciation to Ruth and Roger for their service and their sacrifices. The Quilts of Valor® Foundation is a national organization that honors veterans by awarding them handmade quilts. The volunteers who donate their time and quilting abilities appreciate the service and sacrifice of those who are serving or have served in the Armed Forces, protect freedoms. The organization’s mission is to cover service members and Veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor®. Courtesy photo
