Quilts of Valor honor

In a ceremony at the Memorial Day Program presented at the LDS Stake Center in Taylor May 25, six men were presented medals and a quilt by the Quilts of Valor organization. Each quilt is made specifically for the vet receiving it. Pictured is Randy Street of Round Valley who served eight years in the U.S. Marine Corps in Kuwait and Iraq. Others receiving quilts were former Taylor Mayor Fred Fuentes who served as an officer in Vietnam; Keith Hall of Taylor who served in Vietnam; Matthew Cosper who served in the Middle East, Taylor Vice Mayor Carl Cosper, a decorated veteran who served in Vietnam and former Taylor councilor and recent honorary graduate of Snowflake Union High School Charlie Hall, a decorated World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. Quilts of Valor is a national organization made up of volunteers whose mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing “Quilts of Valor.”
