Quilts of Valor Foundation Honors Owasso’s Carroll Harris


05/15/2019 – The Quilts of Valor Foundation honored Owasso’s own Carroll Harris with a special quilt today for his service to our country.

He was honored for his 23 years of military service in the Air Force, as well as his 21 years of service as the Commander of the Owasso VFW.

Quilts of Valor member Roberta Jorgensen made the beautiful quilt that was presented to Carroll.

To date, the Quilts of Valor Foundation has presented 217,932 quilts nationwide. This year alone they have given out 8,822 quilts to deserving veterans.

Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq.

According to Catherine:

The dream was as vivid as real life. I saw a young man sitting on the side of his bed in the middle of the night, hunched over. The permeating feeling was one of utter despair. I could see his war demons clustered around, dragging him down into an emotional gutter. Then, as if viewing a movie, I saw him in the next scene wrapped in a quilt. His whole demeanor changed from one of despair to one of hope and wellbeing. The quilt had made this dramatic change.
