Students, churches and individuals in the area showed their appreciation for veterans this Valentine’s Day season by making hundreds of Valentine’s cards for the men and women who served in the United States military.

The Cherokee Nation’s Valentines for Vets program has been a tradition for the tribe for 12 years.

CN administration as well as youth ambassadors delivered Valentine’s cards to the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center in Muskogee on Monday.

Other cards will be delivered by Cherokee Nation Veterans Center staff to veterans at veteran centers and hospitals in Tahlequah, Jay, Fayetteville, Sallisaw, Claremore, Vinita and Talihina.
