Non-Traditional Barn Quilts
Here’s a photo showing some non-traditional barn quilts that I recently made, representing the Army units I served in while overseas. The quilts on the left side of the barn represent the time I spent at Fuchu Air Station in Japan – at the top is the 40th Brigade, and below it the 97th AAA Battalion. On the right side of the barn, the top quilt represents the 1st Cavalry, which is where I went to NCO school in Japan. Below it is the 8th Army, a reminder of the time I spent in Inchon, Korea, 1956-57. I’d like to hear from anyone who is familiar with these particular Army units and served during that time.
