Many years ago there was a Dai Do gathering at the Globe & Laurel that Maj. Rick Spooner owns. John Ripley was there. He had just released his book and was signing it. There was a quilt donated by a group of ladies that was auctioned off. Gen. Weise and R. Lee Ermy got into a bidding war. It was out of control! The crowd went wild. One man paid for the quilt and then turned and gave it to the other man. Gen. Weise has the details on which one but I think Ermy paid several thousand dollars and gave it to Weise.
