Love is in the air this Valentine's Day. While many of you are spending time with your family, some aren't as lucky... like the thousands of troops who are overseas.
Yet, so many are making sure that soldiers know how much they're loved and appreciated this Valentine's Day.
We told you a few weeks ago about a project that nurses at Winchester Medical Center were doing to make sure those troops know how many people are thinking about them.
They collected more than a thousand Valentine's Day cards for the organization "Hugs for Soldiers" based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Leaders there say because of TV3's story, many more of you sent in valentines to the organization.
Angie Doerlich says more than 15,000 cards were shipped to soldiers oversees.
We spoke with her via phone from Atlanta and was amazed by the response from the nurses at WMC and our community.
"I was overwhelmed by just the idea that they put together this project. You know, their love for this project and the soldiers that they were able to put forth the effort to secure all the support from their area," said Doerlich.
She said the cards were shipped last week and should be arriving to soldiers in Afghanistan just in time for Valentine's Day.
