Kopperude Awarded Quilt of Valor

The Quilts of Valor Organization presented Mike Kopperude of Battle Lake, a Quilt of Valor for his service in the United States Army as a helicopter Crew Chief in the Republic of South Vietnam. The Quilts of Valor group has provided over 5000 quilts to veterans since starting in 2007. Usually 25 seamstresses volunteer each week at their center in Westridge Mall with an additional 15 contributing from their homes. Right: Getting a hug of congratulations!
