Request for BORNday Cards

To our Brothers & Sisters of the Army; Navy; AF; Space Force; Coast Guard; and my Marines,
In addition to a previous request received, we would like to add two-2 additional names for BORNday Cards requested for these three individuals to your shopping list, please:

#1  …Mr. Willie Sneed, an Army Veteran of the Korean War who will be turning 93 yrs young, on Monday, 14 August 2023 but cards will still be happily received till October. He was actively engaged in both infamous campaign battles at Heartbreak Ridge-Hill #931 & Bloody Ridge. We have listed a link below from a local newspaper of a short synopsis of his life, told by his only daughter Jeanette and included is her Father’s Day poem written to him. This request was God’s send from the east coast through an Angel called Frances for there was only a voice message left, no ringing of the cellphone to answer, no missed call number listed, no return number or last name, or of any group or organization given, and no-one by that name in their family or close friends circle. So we tracked down the Veterans name and matched it up to the google word search as instructed, called the local paper there, they too never heard of any such name Frances, here we all are helping to complete the task at hand. We, Leave No Veteran Behind! Extending Happy BORNday greetings to ya Army vet Willie, fm your Marines! 

Mr. Willie Sneed
PO Box 162
Mebane, N.C. 27302…/article_28e95e94…
