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.
