Maj. Bill White is the oldest living Marine at 104 years old, a Veteran of World War II and survivor of the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. “The fact that I even survived is something. There weren’t too many of us,” White recalled.
White was near the front lines of the battle on March 3, 1945, when a grenade exploded about six inches from, he and his fellow Marines. The injuries he sustained took him off the battlefield, but he recovered and went on to enjoy a long military career. “I spent 30 years active duty and 54 retired,” says White.
Maj. Bill White is “A Veteran Sweetheart” who has a special request this coming Valentine’s Day…. He has many medals and keepsakes from his long military career and life. This year the spirited veteran hopes to grow his collection of keepsakes with Valentine’s Day cards from friends old and new. “I’ll save every one of them…” he told Fox News.
Maj. Bill white is a fellow Veteran, and we would like to honor his request, and encourage all of you to do so as well. Such a simple request, that will have a huge impact on someone who has given so much of himself.
Join in and send a Valentine’s Day card to:

The American Legion proudly decrees “For God and Country”. Today our Country calls us to unite, to put aside our differences, to put aside our political opinions, to put aside any disdain of our chosen leaders. Today we call on God to watch over our brave Troops, our Country, our Homes and our Families.
The American Legion is non-biased on many issues, but when it comes to the treatment and safety of our Service Members and Our Country, we are one united front and a force to be reckoned with. Today we throw our support behind our Leaders, trusting that God will guide them in the tough decisions to follow. We place our faith and pride in our Service Members, as they bravely leave their homes and their families to risk their lives for our protection and freedoms. Bless this country as we pull from the strength of our great Nation, and May God bless our American troops!
January 3, 2020 our President ordered an airstrike resulting in the death of Qasem Soleimani, who was hailed as a hero in Iran and beloved by Iranian troops. A hero to Americans, he is NOT! The pentagon credits Soleimani with the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more. The Defense Department stated that Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.” Soleimani was undoubtedly an enemy to our country and our people, for his decommission we show no remorse.
Iran retaliates, endangering our American troops stationed there to aid in peace and order. They vow further attacks against our country and intend to divide us even more. To them we call their bluff and raise them 300 million plus citizens of the United States ready to protect, defend and support our Country.
What say you? Will we, the American people, unite in support of the protection of the United States of America and all that we hold sacred? Tell us at facebook.com/floridalegion. How do YOU choose to support your country?
Are you interested in supporting our Service Members, Veterans, Communities and Family?
