Dianne Collins appreciates the freedom military veterans provide. She wanted to express that appreciation and decided to thank one, just one, for his service and sacrifice.
On Friday, Collins presented an American flag-themed quilt to retired U.S. Army 1st Sgt. John Edwards, who served 27 years.
“This is beautiful,” Edwards said over and over as he gazed as the quilt at Slightly Different, the Grovetown restaurant he and his wife, Cheryl, run. “To receive something as nice and as personal as this, it kind of makes me sensitive.”
