Sometime on Sunday morning, Feb. 14 a young mother and father brought their three children to the Veterans Center on Hafen Lane to post Valentine hearts filled with love on the front doors.
According to Ken Maynard, Mesquite Veterans Center president, surveillance tapes showed the family dressed in their church finery taping heart shapes colored by the children on the doors. “We don’t know who they are but it sure touched all of us veterans to see the love they left us,” Maynard said. “The little girls were dressed in cute dresses and it appears the family just came from church. It’s nice to know kids are taught to honor us veterans like that.”
