Small Cards with a Big Message for Texas Veterans

Students in Debbie Moore's art class have an important job to do. Their next project will make it's way into the hands of war veterans across Texas. "I want them to know they are important to us," says Cassandra.

"If they weren't here, then we wouldn't have freedom," says Jackie. Isaiah agrees. His grandfather served in the U.S. military. "He was scared in the beginning cause he was very young." Isaiah learned about war through his grandfathers memories. "About how the enemy was firing at them and they were under fire and they were attacking the other towns and cities."

With the thought of another war looming, this project takes on an even greater meaning for Alexandria. "My brother might go to war. I'm worried about him."

Alexandria says her card is about respect, others say it's about bravery. They are small cards with a big message. A simple thanks to American troops who have fought bravely for our freedom.

The letters will be sent to Dallas, Houston, and Bonham just in time for Valentines Day.
