Milford Elementary Students Make Valentines For Vets

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. - What's more sweet in the season of spreading love than Valentines from some elementary school kids.

"The army saved our life and our country," said second-grader Lucas Dieujust.

"Valentines for Vets" is in it's second year and first started in New Castle County. But now, these youngsters at Lulu Ross Elementary in Milford are part of a statewide effort aimed at shooting cupid's arrow at our nation's heroes.

Emma Szkscinski says that she made a card with "a heart and said my heart would be broken without you."

"I wrote 'you may think students here or people don't care about you, but they really do and we like what you're doing for us,'" said fourth-grader Cheyanne Howell.

Those who served our country say that receiving these Valentine's Day cards is very heart-warming.

"It means a lot because it reflects that they've learned that before their time, there was this war that they didn't know about," said veteran Carmen LaPenta, who served in the 44th Infantry Division for the United States Army National Guard.
