An event took place here in Kingman Saturday at the Mohave County Museum that most people took little notice of. A wonderful group of women took it upon themselves to honor another group of men and women.
The Kingman Quilting Guild made a commitment to honor a group of 32 veterans and wounded warriors for their military service and sacrifice for our country. To those of us who were honored, it was a greatly appreciated event that definitely made us proud to have served our nation.
These wonderful women presented 32 beautiful quilts to us. A wonderful program was presented and the women that created each quilt were the presenters to the individual veterans.
Speaking for myself, I was extremely proud to receive my quilt from my wife Jeannie, who had accomplished this project without my knowledge. A great number of the veterans from the Vietnam era were recipients of these wonderful quilts. It was a great day for us and it makes us proud to be ardent supporters of our nation, Arizona and our neighbors here in Kingman. It was a good thing that was done here today and I know that all of us thank you for your support.
Scratch a veteran and you will find a patriot. Scratch a patriot and they will scratch back.
