More than 70 years have passed since they served their country, but their sacrifice will never be forgotten. On Nov. 7, 18 veterans who now make their home at The Waters on 50th senior living community were honored for their service during the community’s Fall Ball, which was covered by KSTP Television, The Southwest Journal and the MN Sun Current.
Among them, three World War Two heroes who each received Quilts of Valor. The honorees are Dr. Sheldon Mandel, who is now 97. He served from 1943 - 1949 in the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Medical Services Corp., and did a tour of duty with a M.A.S.H. unit aboard the hospital ship U.S.S. Comfort.
96-year old Chape McCabe, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. from 1942 to 1946, spending time in the South Pacific.
And 95 year old Harold Lundeen received the Purple Heart for wounds suffered while in action in the Pacific Theatre. He served with the U.S. Army’s Company B 187th Parachute Glider Infantry 11th Airborne Division from 1944 - 1946. A 4th resident who has previously received a Quilt of Valor also lives at the community. His name is Jim Kemp.
Quilts of Valor is a program started in 2003 by Delaware resident Catherine Roberts, whose son, Nate, had been deployed to Iraq. She felt a need to say “Thank you for your service, sacrifice and valor” to as many servicemen and women as she could.
After the ceremony, the celebration continued with a champagne reception, dinner and dancing to The Execs Big Band, a 17 piece orchestra.
