Sheldon, Iowa — A hundred Veterans at the VA Hospital in Sioux Falls and a hundred active-duty soldiers will be feeling the love from Northwest Iowa this Valentines Day.

MariBeth Lane, the advisor for the Health Information Technology Club at Northwest Iowa Community
College says the club has a tradition of participating in the “Valentines for Veterans” program.

She tells us a little about the club.

Lane tells us about the program.

She says they’ve also taken it a step further.

The current active-duty Army soldier who is the brother of one of the HIT students was asked to share those 100 Valentines with his “brothers in arms” in recognition of the students’ gratitude for their past, present, and future service to our country.

HIT club president Sara Reuter of George says she’s proud to share the love with veterans this Valentine’s Day.

On a related note, Reuter tells us that the fundraisers that they have done recently have helped their club to be able to take a trip to Des Moines for the Iowa Health Information Management Association meeting.

She says the meeting is an annual conference where members get together to share and learn.
