Girl Scouts craft valentines to share love and thanks with soldiers

Fourth-grade Girl Scout Troop 77140 of Westlake display their hand-made valentines for active-duty soldiers.

Fourth-grade Girl Scout Troop 77140 of Westlake wanted to help make our soldiers overseas know that they are loved this Valentine's Day. The troop made 50 valentines with expressions of love and thanks to send to the troops.

"It's important to remember those fighting for our safety," said Girl Scout Alexis DeMonica, "especially when their families are so far away."

Each valentine had a small token gift attached of either a friendship bracelet that the girls made, or candy Pop Rocks. The girls hope that these small tokens of thanks will help make our soldiers' Valentine's Day a little brighter!
