Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH11) visited Greenview Upper Elementary School today. She joined students who participate in the Greenview School Student Congress in writing Valentine’s Day Greetings to veterans who are confined at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland.
The event kicked off a project initiated by Congresswoman Fudge’s office. Elementary schools throughout the 11th Congressional District of Ohio have been invited to reach out to veterans with a Valentine’s Day message of caring.
Veteran Dan O’ Brien visited the students and spoke about how the students’ Valentines will be appreciated by all the veterans. South Euclid Mayor Georgine Welo also was present to introduce Congresswoman Fudge. The students then presented him, the congresswoman and the mayor with a Valentine of their own.
“As Americans, we should all convey our thanks to the brave men and women who have selflessly and courageously served our Nation,” said Congresswoman Fudge. “Presently, there are 562 patients at the Medical Center, and it is my goal to make sure that all of those veterans receive a greeting card on Valentine's Day. It is a small act of kindness for those who have given so much to preserve our freedom.”
