World War II Veterans Thank Active Marines with Care Packages and Letters

Sending letters of support and gratitude for those who serve.

With Veteran's Day on the horizon, two World War II veterans are showing support for their fellow soldiers with handwritten letters and heartfelt gifts.


Larry O'Rourke and Richard Laonard, along with some friends at their assisted living facility in Woodstock, Vermont, are preparing to send care packages to two active Marines who were recently deployed overseas. 

O'Rourke served in the Army Corps of Engineers and Laonard served in the Air Force. Although both men say they didn't see combat during their service, the impact the military had on their lives and relationships was profound enough to give hope to fellow soldiers with encouragement.
