ROTTERDAM, N.Y.(NEWS10)—It’s the eighth year that kids at Bradt Primary School in Rotterdam have written Valentine’s Day cards for vets.

Staff sergeant Arroyo, US Air Force, shows off his Valentine’s Day card he received from the kids Thursday.

The first and second graders wrote more than 650 cards. Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara was on hand Thursday to pick up the cards so he can deliver them to veterans at the Stratton VA on Friday.
