RMCNews with Betty Soper – Delta, Colorado … Delta Adventist School students spent Veteran’s Day fellowshipping with four local veterans, learning about their experiences.
Students welcomed the heroes to their school and presented them each with a quilt provided by the Quilts of Valor organization. The homemade quilts are a unique way to thank the veterans for their service, sacrifice, and valor.
The four honored veterans were Harry Lloyd, John Harold, Daniel Tilelli, and Robert Goodrich.
Students took turns handing the quilts to the men who served the nation. Some were timid, giving the quilts to the heroes with downcast eyes, while others were in awe, looking up at the men who served.
After the ceremony of presenting the quilts, the four veterans and students enjoyed lunch and the chance to build relationships through conversation.
