Clare County Veterans Honored by Quilts of Valor

Two Clare County veterans were given tokens of appreciation Monday in Harrison.

Veterans Kevin McDevitt and Dave Arndt were presented quilts from the local chapter of Quilts of Valor.

They are meant as a way to say thank you to both men for their service to our country.

McDevitt says he was thankful to be honored, but hopes people use Memorial Day to reflect on those who weren’t able to make it home.

“It’s important more that we give thanks for the things they we’re able to enjoy on this weekend, and it’s for the sacrifice of those folks that gave everything,” said McDevitt.

Quilts of Valor works on quilts throughout the year to present to local veterans.
