The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of so many - including those who live in nursing homes, assisted living and independent living facilities.
After two months of isolation, 91-year-old Korean War Veteran Rita Jordan had her first opportunity to spend time with some of her veteran sisters from Women Veterans of SW Missouri, American Legion Post 1214 in Springfield, Missouri.
Rita served in the U.S. Navy as an interpreter and parachute rigger. In appreciation for her service, Post 1214 Charter Members Mary Clapper and Chaplain Jan Lile presented Rita with a well-deserved Quilt of Valor, courtesy of the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild. Congratulations, Rita!
