Surrounded Friday by friends and family at his home on East High Street, longtime Milton resident and World War II veteran Frank Bua, 93, was presented with a Quilt of Valor. 

The 60- by 80-inch quilt was presented by one of its makers, Alice Johnson, Mukwonago. Often emotional, in her speech, Johnson said: “Your quilt was made by three volunteers. One did the top and backing, one did the machine quilting and one made the label. It was made in our homes of good fabrics and patterns. Each step was the best we could do to honor you and say thank you.
