My father was in the Army – he was in the reserves by the time I came along – but was proud of serving and always wanted to continue to serve. He retired as a Full Colonel with a medical retirement from the reserves. He was a member of all the local veterans’ groups even working on State and National Levels. So, he instilled a pride and admiration in for our country and those who have served/serve it. Not being military myself this is a wonderful way to do something I enjoy and still be able to give back and show gratitude and admiration.
I am also a member of the Clifton Quilters Guild – I am the current Group Leader for our Quilts of Valor. I am a past President, Membership and Programs for the Guild as well.
