Quilt of Valor Presentation to WW-2 Veteran in Canton, GA.

On the eve of the 72nd Anniversary of D-Day, The Allied Invasion of Europe, we had the distinct honor of participating in Awarding a Quilt of Valor to Pvt. Jack Carrier who was an Army Medic during WW-2 on the U.S.S. Comfort.

The presentation was made by Mr. John Finch, representing QOV, Jim Busi, Sr. Vice Commander and myself, Eldrige Holloway, Jr. Vice Commander from VFW Post 5408 in Acworth, Georgia.

The 89 years young hero is one of only a few left from our “Greatest Generation” and he and his wife Mary have only been residents of Harmony on the Lakes here in Canton, Georgia for 7 months.

We are very proud to have them as our neighbors in the North Village.
