This Valentine’s Day, help a hero! Brighten a 104 year-old Veteran’s Day by sending a Valentine’s Day card.

“I’ll save every one of them like I’ve been saving little things that have come up until right now and they’ll be a personal part of my history,” retired Marine Major Bill White told KTXL. (KTXL screenshot)

This Veteran, has quite a lot of military service. Maj. Bill White served in World War II, survived the Battle of Iwo Jima and went on to continue a long career in the U.S. Marine Corps. “I spent 30 years active duty and 54 retired,” White told FOX40.

He is also a Purple Heart recipient.  He is proud of his medal, he earned while fighting in the Battle of Iwo Jima. “The fact that I even survived is something. There weren’t too many of us,” White explained.

 White under heavy fire from Japanese soldiers, Major White led his  Marines to to the front lines.  It was on this day on March 3, 1945 that he was wounded. A grenade blew up about 6 inches from him.  Although he was injured on the battlefield, he has a lead a full and complete life. At 104, he says he’s still glad to be alive!

A native of California, he spends his days dining with his friends and preserving memories by scrapbooking. These scrapbooks are some of his most valued possessions and are displayed on bookshelves in his room.  

He receives lots of letters from people all over the world, and this year he wants to add to his collection. He saves all of them, every single one.
