Dream details: Lloyd is proud to have served his country. He was in the Army for 31 years. He retired as a Sargent Major with a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. I am planning a surprise presentation to honor his service. I have nominated him to receive a Quilt of Valor. It is a single lifetime award. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.
Dreamer background: Lloyd Wrenn is back in Georgia after over 30 years. He was born in Arkansas in 1923 but spent the majority of his youth in Missouri. It was not easy growing up in the Midwest during the Great Depression but it made him the type of person who didn’t complain much and who appreciated everything in life. He joined the Army as a teenager and was sent overseas during WWII. He was fortunate to survive the Normandy landing on Omaha Beach during D-Day and many other battles before the war ended. After the war, Lloyd was stationed in Salzburg, Austria, where he met his wife, Karoline Theresa Watzinger. They married in Salzburg and stayed in Austria and Germany for several years before returning to the United States.
