From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — Members of the Josiah Brunson Daughters of the American Revolution presented a Quilt of Valor and Certificate of Appreciation to U.S. Army veteran Clifford Odom on Sunday, Dec. 2, at the Pell City Veterans Home.
Odom served the United States Army during the Korean conflict, then spent the next 32 years in the service of the Army National Guard, retiring with the title of Chief Warrant Officer. As a civilian, Odom focused on real estate development in western Jefferson County, Center Point and Trussville. He was also a real estate appraiser.
The Quilt of Valor was prepared by Chris Long and its draping around Odom’s shoulders represented DAR’s honoring of his sacrifice and service.
