Mifflinburg veteran awarded Quilt of Valor

Veteran Jacob Engle, of Mifflinburg, was awarded a Quilt of Valor in honor and recognition of his service to our country. Engle served in the US Air Force from 1950-1971. He did administrative work starting with recordkeeping but spending much of his career doing classified work. He served at Keesler, Maxwell, Bolling, Manzano and Elmendorf Air Force bases in the states. Overseas, Engle served at K-13 Air Base near Suwon, South Korea, during the Korean War where he was the NCOIC of a camp for Korean laborers helping on the base and later at Yokota, Japan. During some of his service, he was working with the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. Engle left the Air Force as a master sergeant. His quilt was pieced by Mary Carr, quilted by Rhonda Freezer, and awarded by Jim and Bonnie Fiedler, members of the Columbia County Quilts of Valor.
