You did it again — Sedalia, Marshall, Sweet Springs, Cole Camp and all points in and around this area. As commander of Voiture 333, 40 & 8, I made an appeal for valentines on Feb. 5. I requested valentines for veterans in VA hospitals, veteran homes and visiting veteran clinics this week. The deadline was Feb. 12, through the cooperation of the Sedalia Democrat.
As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, we had received 1,047 cards from young and old — beautiful cards from kids of all ages and even some from adults. Thank you for getting involved. You have made some veterans very happy. Please remember to thank them for their service. Remember, if it was not for them, you might not be celebrating Valentine’s Day.
