Quilts of Valor: Foundation honors Army captain transferring from Camp Parks


Army Capt. Todd Hamilton was draped with the quilt he recently received courtesy of the Quilts of Valor Foundation, which recognizes service members and veterans touched by war with a comforting and healing handmade quilt.

Hamilton, who is still on active duty and is being transferred from Camp Parks in Dublin to an undisclosed station on the East Coast, was a two-time Purple Heart recipient as a combat paratrooper and has been involved with local military support organizations in the Tri-Valley.

Joining in the quilt presentation, were Dave Caldwell, commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6298, and local quilter Karin Linforth.
