Valentine’s for Vets honors area veterans
By Simone Wichers-Voss
When you ask area Vietnam veterans who their sweetheart is, many will answer Martha West. A kindergarten teacher at Kopperl Independent School District and wife of a Vietnam veteran, West has a remarkable enthusiasm, energy and drive for anything that support veterans in general.
For the fourth year, West and mascot Sammy Bear organized a heart-warming Valentine’s for Vets event Feb. 14, at the Kopperl school gym. The event was sponsored by the school’s 50th Commemoration of the Vietnam War Partnership Committee. West calls the Valentine event “A Day of Gratitude and honor.”
