Heart the Troops

By Bruce Felps

East Dallas students can show a little love to members of the U.S. Armed Forces for Valentine’s Day through a program supported by U.S. Rep. Jeb Hensarling.

The congressman today announced this year’s installment of the annual Valentines for Vets in which students create handmade Valentines cards to give to hospitalized veterans at the Dallas Veterans Administration Medical Center and members of the armed services returning to and from overseas posts through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Teachers, principals, parents, and organizations who would like to participate in this effort should contact Sarah Rozier in Hensarling’s Dallas office at (214) 349-9996.  All valentines must be collected by Feb. 9 to ensure delivery by Valentine’s Day.

Valentines for Vets is an annual program conducted in conjunction with National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans Week. Every February, Americans open their hearts to hospitalized veterans by sending cards and letters to Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers across the country.
