ongressman Dan Kildee hand delivered hand made Valentine's cards Monday morning to My Brother's Keeper in Flint.
he messags were hand made by area school children.
ildee said giving thanks to a veteran in the form of a valentine's card is nice, but it's also important for him to hear from veterans about their challenges.
o know not only that our federal government is really taking care of us when we come back but our local government, it's still surprising when someone says thank you for our service," said veteran Dave Courter.
t's just really good to know what these folks have faced, what their experience was coming back from the military,
what challenges they have," said Kildee.
