Memorial quilt

392 - Deerfield, MI

Deerfield Post 392, Deerfield, Mich., hosts an annual Testicle Festival that provides the post with the majority of its income; it is believed to be the largest one-day event at a legion in Michigan. When Bob Pieh passed away from complications from Agent Orange exposure just prior to the 2015 event, his daughter-in-law Amber Pieh wanted to do something for the post. She decided to make a quilt from all the T-shirts sold at the event and present it to the Legion.
Bob joined the Deerfield post in 1968 when he returned from Vietnam, and for 46 consecutive years was an active and valuable member of the post.
