We love to celebrate our birthdays and even more our Vets!
Duane Sherman, a WW II Navy veteran is turning 96 on December 30th and feels indifferent about celebrating his birthday this year.
In an interview, Duane joked about not having any friends that around anymore and his daughter Sue Sherman came up with a brilliant idea. Her father asks her everyday if there's any letters in the mail he can open. She always has to tell him, no and started to realize how much the little things matter in life.
We're out of touch with the personalization of a letter since we use different forms of communication. There's something about opening up a physical letter that makes you feel special.
Sue took to Facebook to ask people to send her dad a birthday card because her dad isn't just special to her, but also the country for his service and sacrifice. A little "Thank you" goes a long way.
With his birthday slowly arriving, Duane looks forward to opening up the mailbox and read his letters.
