‘I machine pieced and hand quilted this quilt as a gift for my husband of 50 years, Jim Branham on Nov. 11, 2015. He served as commander of three Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal Units, one in New Jersey and two in Vietnam. We both come from families with a history of army service in every conflict from the French and Indian War to Vietnam. My husband has made me proud and served his country well in a War whose warriors were not welcomed back as heroes, to this nation’s everlasting discredit. This quilt is to say that I think he is a Hero.’ - Quiltmaker: Joy Branham of Eidson, Tennessee
