Fallen Soldiers' Families Receive Quilts

James Robinson, SOS Support Coordinator, Army Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) Program,  has presented three of the quilts we donated this summer to mothers of fallen soldiers.

Mrs. Jane Green, Gautier, honoring her son MAJ Michael L. Green, who was killed in 2008 in Afghanistan.

Mrs. Dianne Newman, Waynesboro, honoring her son SGT Melvin L. Henley, who died in Iraq in 2007.

Mrs. Nadine Henley, Jackson, honoring her son SPC Melvin L. Henley, who died in Iraq in 2007.

A certificate was presented with each quilt, reading:
We are proud to present quilts to the families of
Fallen Soldiers who have given their life in service to
our country. These quilts are made with love and
compassion and are our way of saying thank you for
your dedication and sacrifice to keep our country free.
