Local veteran and Purple Heart recipient Melvin Postlewait received a Quilt of Valor during the Fountain Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 11.
Presented by Fran Carrick of local sewing group Sew Time in the Valley, the quilt "is an expression of gratitude, meant to thank and comfort our veterans," she said. "We honor our veterans for their service, for leaving all that they hold dear and for standing in harm's way in a time of crisis, protecting us from the effects of war. You are appreciated. You are remembered."
Similar quilts are given to veterans all over the country.
