Presentation 2/9/12

Today, February 9,2012 Tina Hardt and myself and my husband Raymond went to visit PFC Robert Ditzler. He is a WWII Vet. His daughter had submitted a request through the QOV website for a quilt for her father. Mr. Ditzler is a very sweet man and has many memories of when he grew up in Davis, IL and being in North Africa and in Europe. He shared some those with us. We told him and his wife about Quilts of Valor and then presented him with his quilt. He was so pleased. He has had two heart by passes and he said that this will keep his legs warm. He is disabled because of severe flat feet and still was willing to serve his country when his country needed him. Our deepest thanks to him for being not only a hero to his family but a hero for all of us. Oh, and lest I forget Mr. Ditzler is 89 years old and is as sharp as they come. Quick wit and just a great conversationalist. He also has all of the letters that he sent home to his parents when he was overseas. What a treasure for his family to have a chance to relive history thought his letters.
