US Navy veteran Clayton “Jack” Wise was honored recently for his service to our country when he received a “Quilt of Valor”, during a ceremony at Bishop’s Commons in Oswego. 

The mission of the “Quilts of Valor” Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. A Quilt of Valor is a lifetime award, and it says “thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor” in serving our nation.

With his family and friends on hand, Wise received a beautiful handmade quilt from Kerry Barnes, New York State Coordinator for the Quilts of Valor Foundation during a ceremony in his honor. The beautiful quilt was handmade by Sally Stevens at The Old Creamery Fabrics & Quilting Shop in Ellisburg, NY.

Thank you Mr. Wise for your service and congratulations on receiving a “Quilt of Valor”.
