WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Veteran’s Land Board announced a “Valentines for Veterans” campaign on Friday, inviting Texans to send Valentine’s cards to the nearly 1,000 residents of its nine State Veterans Homes.

The VLB said the cards help remind veterans that they’re an integral part of communities around the state.

“We are humbled and privileged to provide care to so many of our nation’s heroes,” VLB Chairman George P. Bush said. “As we approach Valentine’s Day, I challenge all Texans to take a minute of their time to show their appreciation of these men and women by sending Valentines.”

Those interested in participating can mail Valentines to any of the nine State Veterans Homes. To ensure on-time delivery, cards should be postmarked by no later than Feb. 10 and should include “Valentines for Veterans” in the mailing address.
