And now for the rest of the story and a fitting story it is:
The American legion Post # 8 recently presented some quilts to veterans and also awarded a veteran a 50 year membership certificate
In the military way of life, there is always another mission that needs to be done in order to meet the unit’s goals. Everyone knows what is expected and works together as a team and the job gets done.
Dot Plume and Donna Stearns secret mission of late has been to make Quilts for Combat veterans. They too work well as a team and as you can see from these photos their mission is complete at least for now.
