Al Lind - Quilts of Valor - September 10, 2010

In memoriam - Al Lind, 92, September 10, 2010, created and donated over 400 Quilts of Valor to Honor and Comfort service members returning from duty overseas who were touch by war.

Al Lind - was lovingly referred to as a QOV Poster Boy and more, but this veteran told it like it was...

Mr. Lind was a WWII veteran and a former prisoner of war who quilted for other vets and handily admonished other vets to "get off their duffs" and quilt! Through the Quilts of Valor program, he has assisted with the creation of nearly 400 quilts.
Mr. Lind, was presented a plaque at the U.S. Army Yakima Training Center in central Washington by Brig. Gen. Frank Cipolla, Deputy Commanding General of the 88th Regional Support Command at Fort McCoy.
