Our latest Hometown Hero is Judy Brown. Judy was a sergaent in the Army Reserves and served in Iraq where she injured her back. When she returned home she was presented with a Quilt of Valor.

She's now passing that on and has been instrumental in organizing homecomings for returning veterans in Parke and Vermillion counties.

Judy has made around 100 quilts and presented over 300 to veterans of all conflicts. She has helped veterans in paying bills, getting food or any way she can help those in need. Judy Brown is a selfless giving person who expects nothing in return. For those reasons we are proud to say Judy Brown is our latest Hometown Hero.
