5th Grade – Operation Valentine

The 5th graders created valentines in Ms. Angelo’s class as a writing assignment for “Operation Valentine”, which asked friends and strangers alike to send greetings to honor White. Major William White, a 104-year-old U.S. Marine veteran who earned a Purple Heart in World War Two, spent 34 years active duty in the US Marine Corps. He celebrated Valentine’s Day this year like never before, surrounded by a mountain of more than 70,000 love letters and well-wishes sent from all over the world.
