Sign card for a World War II veteran as part of Operation Valentine

Next week, add your well wishes and thanks to a Valentine’s Day card for a 104-year-old World War II veteran, Major Bill White. LCC is joining in Operation Valentine, a nationwide call to action to send cards to the Marine.

Major White is an avid scrapbooker, and this year, his family made a viral request: Write to Major White to give him more memories to document in his scrapbook. He was an active Marine for 30 years and has been retired for 55, and he received a Purple Heart for injuries at Iwo Jima in World War II, according to an interview with ABC News.

LCC’s card is four feet tall and will be on display for signatures Feb. 3-5 in the Commons and Feb. 6-7 at West Campus. The college will then mail the card to Major White, along with a letter of gratitude from our Office of Veteran and Military Affairs.
