MILLVILLE, N.J. -

On Thursday, July 12th, at the Millville Army Airfield Museum, three local World War Two veterans were presented with Quilts of Valor in recognition of their service to our country.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation is an international organization whose volunteers offer our veterans comfort in the form of handmade quilts.

"They actually have volunteers that put together these wonderful quilts and they present them to veterans — not only World War Two veterans, but veterans of all branches, and they do this just to show their love for the veterans and thank them for their service," said Lisa Jester, executive director at the Millville Army Air Field Museum.

Thursday's recipients were all veterans who often volunteer at the Army Airfield Museum — Owen Garrison of Bridgeton, Tim Kiniry of Vineland, and Walter Kocielski of Millville.
