Be a real sweetheart and mail a Valentine’s Day card to a hospitalized veteran at a nearby VA center. This would be a great project this week for the kids.
I read about this in Parade Magazine yesterday and it spoke to my heart.
You can find the address of a local VA facility at va.gov. Just plug in your location. You can address the Valentine to ” any veteran”, or just address it to the facility and write – please distribute to the veteran of your choice.
I have a special affinity for the remaining World War II veterans, “The Greatest Generation.” You can bless them while there is still time.
If you hear of any programs to benefit veterans and their families, please let me know so I can do my part to spread the word.
