On February 14, 2022, The Hunter Holms Veterans Hospital Richmond Virginia unveiled some very special and meaningful murals. Depicted on these murals were five Veterans including two nurses. I was honored to be one of the Veterans chosen. I was representing all Vietnam Veterans and acknowledged for the Cane training I have been doing with Disabled Veterans. At this unveiling we were also presented with a Quilt of Valor for our service to this great nation.
