Share the Love: Send Valentines to Veterans

By Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers can show their appreciation to military service members who came before them by sending free valentines through the Joint Base Charleston Exchange now through Feb. 6th.

Now in its second 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 Angela Mauras from the Exchange. "'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 JB Charleston - Air Base Exchange through Feb. 6th and fill out the cards provided or bring their own cards to drop off. The drop off box at the JB Charleston Exchange is located at the main entrance of the Exchange. The Exchange will arrange for delivery to local veterans on or before Valentine's Day.

Exchange shoppers can learn more by contacting the JB Charleston Exchange at 552-5000 and asking about "Valentines for Veterans."
