Lost Heroes Quilt On Display At The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center [AUDIO]
The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) is proud to display the Lost Heroes Art Quilt on July 20-22.
The quilt, which honors U.S. soldiers who have fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan, is currently on exhibition in state houses and museums throughout the United States.
The quilt features childhood photographs of fallen soldiers from all 50 states. Admission to view the quilt is free.
On July 21, at 7 p.m., the Trails Center will hold a free reception featuring Bob and Susi Miller, of Casper. The reception will include a documentary on the creation of the Lost Heroes Quilt, followed by a presentation by Susi Miller.
A photograph of the Miller’s son, Army Private Scott Allan Miller, is represented in the quilt. Private Miller, a graduate of Natrona County High School, was killed in Iraq on June 9, 2007 by a sniper. He was 20 years old. Bob and Susi joined us this morning to talk about Scott and the quilt.
