Operation Valentine

Jan 11, 2018 to Feb 5, 2018

Send a Valentine to a Hero

The message is a simple one, “Thank you so much for what you do, we always need you.” This is just one of the many sweet messages from the heart of a child to a soldier or veteran in a project called OPERATION VALENTINE.

Jackson, Lytle & Lewis Life Celebration Center is the exclusive Veterans & Family Memorial Care funeral home provider in Clark County and we are participating in the OPERATION VALENTINE initiative. The project is simple and meaningful, according to Frank Lewis. “Students and individuals throughout the community write messages to the troops and veterans on Valentine Cards, Cut-Out Hearts, or whatever they like and we make sure that they are delivered to our brave men and women serving overseas.”

Cards cannot include glitter, food or candy, but there are still many ways to personalize a handmade card. Write a message on them and say “Thank You,” tell them about yourself and wish them a Happy Valentine Day! Our troops are away from their loved ones and friends so they really want to know that people back home appreciate them. “Care packages are great, but this is a real morale boost”, said Frank Lewis.

Valentine cards may be dropped off from now thru February 5th between 9am and 5pm at

Jackson, Lytle & Lewis Life Celebration Center

2425 N. Limestone,

Springfield OH 45503
