Quilt made in honor of Woodstock veteran to be dedicated Nov. 11

The quilt is stunning, and is presently being displayed at the museum in Chandler, Texas, in anticipation of its arrival in Woodstock. “Doc” Quinn — the only Woodstocker to die in Vietnam — was awarded, among many other medals, The Distinguished Service Cross, and the Combat Medical Badge, both posthumously. Each of his medals, as well as his portrait, are entirely embroidered, as are all the names of his family, friends, fellow medics, and many of the soldiers who served with Quinn in Vietnam.
