FORTUNA- Monday was a special night for a North Coast military family as they honored their veteran father who served in Vietnam.
Tara Andrews and her family gathered at the Fortuna Veterans Hall to honor their father Dale Andrews with a "Quilt of Valor." The quilts are handmade by volunteers and are given to service members touched by war. Tara says her brother nominated and submitted their father's name to the foundation.
Dale served two years in Vietnam from 1971 to 1973 and supplied five different firebases with supplies. He won the national defense service medal, Vietnam service medal and a Vietnam campaign medal.
