During our February general meeting, the Georgia chapter of Quilts of Honor presented a quilt to John Hawes.
The mission of Quilts of Honor is to bestow a universal symbol and token of thanks, solace, and remembrance to those who serve in harm’s way to protect and defend our lives and freedoms.
Quilts of Honor are made by the loving hands of countless volunteers who wish to thank those who have served and to honor their service and sacrifice.
John is a very active member of Post 29. As early as age 18, John served with distinction in Vietnam, as part of the Army 5th Cavalry. He is a recipient of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. John has remained active, serving veterans both through American Legion Post 29 and as Commander of Chapter 576 (Alpharetta) of Military Order of the Purple Heart.
John was also recognized with a Certificate of Honor from Post 29 Commander Walt Cusick. Thank you John!
