With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, why not share the love and send a Valentine to a veteran?

 

U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.-Texas) will launch the annual “Valentines for Veterans” drive at Huffman Elementary School in Plano.  To kick off the drive, Johnson and these elementary students will hand-make valentines to be delivered to our veterans, the men and women who fought tirelessly to protect our freedoms.

 

 The “Valentines for Vets” program occurs every February as a part of The National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week – an opportunity for all Americans to say thank you to a revered group of men and women by sending cards and letters to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers across the country.  Johnson personally will deliver the hand-made greetings to veterans at the Dallas VA on Valentine’s Day.
