WWII veteran, 104, asks for Valentine's Day cards: 'I'll save every one'

Recommended Posts

Will you be his Valentine?

 

A 104-year-old World War II veteran hopes to receive plenty of Valentine’s Day cards this year, to add to his collection of keepsakes documenting his own incredible life and times.

 

WHO IS SAINT VALENTINE? THE RELIGIOUS HISTORY OF THE DAY THAT CELEBRATES LOVE

Maj. Bill White served in the Marine Corps during World War II and survived the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945, Fox 40 reports. One of White’s most cherished medals is his Purple Heart, which is awarded to those who were wounded or killed in action.

“The fact that I even survived is something. There weren’t too many of us,” White recalled.
