WWII Veteran Asks For Valentine's Day Cards

BOSTON (CBS) - A World War II veteran in California who is 104-years old has one wish for Valentine's Day. Major Bill White wants as many people as possible, including complete strangers, to send him a card.

He spent 30 years as an active duty Marine, getting a Purple Heart for his service at the Battle of Iwo Jima.

He is hoping to add to his scrap-booking collection with cards from people near and far. White said he will save everyone one of them and they will become a part of his personal history.
