With Valentines Day coming up in about TWO Weeks, I thought this might be a good time to remind the members on this site that maybe you could send this 104 year old, Retired USMC Major a Happy Valentines Day Card with a little Thank You note for his service to our country. Maybe send him a card as a group through the firehouse and your company or as an individual. It's a simple request for a guy who has done so much for us.68jk09 said:MAKE A 104 YO MARINES DAY....SEND A CARD OR A THANK YOU NOTE..... https://fox59.com/2020/01/11/this-104-year-old-marine-corps-veteran-is-asking-for-valentines-day-cards-ill-save-every-one/
Here is the address you want to send it to:
Attn: Hold for Major Bill White USMC (Retired)
The Oaks at Inglewood
6725 Inglewood Ave
Stockton, Ca. 95207
I also have another Special Request to send a World War II Veteran and a good friend a Birthday Card for his upcoming 96th Birthday.
His name is Ken Kelly. I met Kenny way back in the very early 1970s at a fire in Bridgeport, Ct. Both of us lived there and were buffs. But I had already been buffing the FDNY and the FDNY War Years were just beginning. I told him that if he really wanted to see some fires he should come buffing the FDNY with me. Then he told me, "I already go there too". That began a 50 year friendship along with hundreds of buff trips to NYC.
Kenny has met a few guys from this site. He certainly has the highest respect for the members of the FDNY, as well as other firefighters, along with Dispatchers, EMTs/Medics, and Police Officers. Of course other Military Members as well.
Kenny's 96th birthday is February 23rd. I am very sure a birthday card from you or your company would make his day. If you can do it, "I certainly appreciate it". I'm going to try and get a few pictures posted of him on here. His address is:
1241 Main St apt 411
Bridgeport, Ct 06604
