Typically the cards I’m asked to send through my Pen Pal groups are for active duty military personnel. For them I have a Patriotic Happiest of Birthdays card that the Hacienda Heights Ladies Group and I kind of mass produce. Each year I will change the design to keep it fresh, but it’s new to a different set of recipients each month.
Each month I also get a requests for Birthday Wishes for our Veteran’s. This is the most recent request I’ve received for a Veteran:
WW II US Army Nurse Corps (Served in Germany, England, France) Her 100th birthday is March 27, 2020.
I mean really!!? This woman is a legend! She is getting a special birthday card. For her and the many other Vets I send birthday cards to, I make a special card using the Awesome at Any Age stamp from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. I like to make them feel special with their own Patriotic individual “card cupcake” from the retired Hello Cupcake stamp set.
I’m terrible at history. I will be the first to admit it, but one thing is for sure – Freedom isn’t free. Honor our Veteran’s for their service and sacrifice to this great nation.
