CARSON'S OFFICE DELIVERS VALENTINES TO VETERANS
INDIANAPOLIS - Staff from the Office of Congressman André Carson delivered approximately 500 valentines from area schools to veterans at the Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis today.
The event gathers and delivers valentines made by school children to hospitalized veterans and began 14 years ago when Congresswoman Julia Carson represented the Indianapolis area.
"Hoosier veterans have put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and way of life," said Congressman Carson. "I'm glad we can show how grateful we are for their service to our country. I appreciate all the students, teachers and staff who participated in creating and delivering the valentines at today's event."
