Several of the 14 present did. Each was presented with an individual package of items related to his/her specific†branch of the service ñ- and all five U.S. military branches of the service were represented, Army Navy,†Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.† † † † †Master quilter, Shirley Karlstrum, designed and created a special hanging banner that she†donated for the occasion. A drawing was held for the veterans present, and the lucky recipient†of the quilt was Donald Dinwoodie.The program speaker, Phillip Heacock, lead docent at the National Museum of World War II†Aviation in Colorado Springs, spoke on an appropriate subject for the day.
