Quilts of Valor at the Muskogee War Memorial Park
The staff at the Muskogee War Memorial Park: Home of the USS Batfish, was proud to have another one of our submarine veterans honored by Quilts of Valor, an organization dedicated to cover veterans and service members with comforting and healing quilts of valor. Nick Guagliardo, a World War II veteran who served aboard the USS Loggerhead (SS-374) and the USS Mackerel (SS-204), received a Quilt of Valor made by Sue Goldsmith Harris.
Our favorite group of Sea Cadets presented Nick with his Quilt of Valor. The Sea Cadets have been training, working, and learning for 10 days at the Muskogee War Memorial Park: Home of the USS Batfish.
Nick was instrumental in bringing a submarine to Muskogee, Oklahoma and is also one our board members at the Muskogee War Memorial Park. While he claims to be 90 years old, he honestly does not look a day over 45.
