Quilts presented at Fried Green Tomato Festival

The Starr Mountain Quilters presented Quilts of Valor to three veterans at last weekend’s Fried Green Tomato Festival in Niota. Kholson Bull (on the left) gave flags to each recipient, pictured here from left: Albert Howard (Army, National Guard, Vietnam veteran), Vernon Darnell (Army, Vietnam veteran), and Billy Woody (Navy, Vietnam veteran). Check out an upcoming edition of The DPA for more Quilts of Valor pictures from last weekend’s War on Terror Ceremony in Athens.
