Iowa group gives quilts to honor service members

FONDA, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa group that comforts military families is presenting quilts to the families of six fallen service members.

Freedom Quilts, Inc. will present the quilts during an event Saturday in Fonda. Col. Robert Wiley of the 103rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command will be the keynote speaker.

The quilts were sewn by volunteers. They will honor service members that have served in Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan.

The group’s founder says the quilts are a reminder for the families that their loved one is not forgotten.
