Quilt of Valor

Do you know who celebrates a birthday on October 13th? Here’s a clue – it’s not a person! It’s the United States Navy. October 13th marks the birthday of the United States Navy. The United States Navy is 245 years old. The United States Navy traces roots back to the early days of the American Revolution. On October 13, 1775, the Continental Congress established a naval force, hoping that a small fleet of privateers could attach British commerce and offset British sea powers.

I’d like to introduce you to LeRoy Semin, Airman 3rd Class Petty Officer, in the United States Navy. I honored LeRoy Semin with a Quilt of Valor as a way of showing my gratitude to him, for his service to our country.
