Quilts of Valor Honors 2 Valley World War II Veterans
RAYMONDVILLE – There were no marching bands or big political speeches.
That didn’t stop a group of veterans from honoring two of their own in a special way.
Guadalupe Espinosa of Raymondville is 98 years old and Juan Cantu Jr. is 99 from nearby Lasara; they are both World War II veterans.
At their age, they now need a little assistance getting around, but they were in their prime when they served their country.
They’re being honored with the Quilt of Valor, from a foundation that was founded by a mother of an Iraq War veteran.
The quilts are individually handmade to bring comfort from the effects of war.
