Killeen Daily Herald: Share the love: Initiative launched to send veterans Valentine’s Day cards

The Texas Veterans Land Board announced the initiative to share love with nearly 1,000 veterans who live in state-operated nursing homes. The board’s goal is to show veterans that they are not forgotten during the coronavirus crisis.

The William R. Courtney Texas State Veterans Home in Temple is among the facilities where people can send cards.

“The (land board) team is committed to keeping our veterans’ safety at the forefront of our minds during this pandemic, but doing so certainly does not mean we can’t share our love for them this Valentine’s Day,” Texas Veteran Land Board Chairman George P. Bush said in a news release. “Our goal is to ensure every veteran residing in our facilities receives some love from their nearby communities and we are eager to see the response from this effort. I challenge every community across Texas to shower our veterans with love this Valentine’s Day and help us exceed our goal of 1,000 cards.”
