Pleasanton: Quilt of Valor for Bill Danko

William "Bill" Danko Jr. recently received a Quilt of Valor, at the "Beer, Brats & Bingo" fundraiser at the Pleasanton VFW Post #6298, presented to him by Karin Linforth, a local Realtor and one of the many volunteer quilters in the Quilts of Valor organization.

Danko joined the U.S. Navy in 1987, and while in the Navy, received two Navy Achievement Medals, two Good Conduct Medals and the Navy Commendation Medal for sustained acts of heroism or meritorious service. He also received a "Sailor of the Year" award.

Danko was honorably discharged in 1999, after serving 12 years in the Navy, two in the foreign services. Here at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #6298, he has been actively involved in its charitable fundraisers held throughout the year.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation recognizes service members and veterans "touched by war" with a comforting and healing quilt, the results of many hours of labor and presented with hugs, kisses and tears. To nominate a recipient, contact Linforth at 550-2726.
