Share the love: Send Valentines to veterans

aafes-vets
Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers can show their appreciation to military service members who came before them by sending free valentines through the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange through Feb. 8.

Now in its third year, “Valentines for Veterans” is an annual Exchange campaign to send greetings to local Veterans Administration hospitals, Fisher House locations and military retirement facilities.

“Our shoppers include many veterans and their families who know what it means to serve, and understand how nice it is to be remembered,” said the Exchange’s general manager, Mike Wiles. “‘Valentines for Veterans’ is an opportunity for our patrons to reach out to those who’ve already served and send their greetings.”

To send free Valentine’s Day cards, shoppers can simply stop by the Edwards AFB Exchange through Feb. 8 and fill out cards provided, or bring their own cards to drop off. The drop off box at the Edwards AFB Exchange is located in the food court, by Popeye’s. The Exchange will arrange for delivery to local veterans on Valentine’s Day.

Exchange shoppers can learn more by contacting the Edwards AFB Exchange at (661)258-1078 and asking about “Valentines for Veterans.”
