From Congressman Hice, " After lunch, I was proud to join the Knights of Columbus and Georgia Department of Veteran Services Commissioner Mike Roby in presenting handmade patriotic quilts to veterans who reside at the Georgia War Veterans Veterans Home. American's veterans risk their lives to defend our freedom and keep us safe, and these quilts are a small token of our gratitude. To each and every veteran, Thank You for Your Service."
