glenviewlantern.com news the glenview lantern | January 25, 2018 | 3 Saluting those who served Glenview residents make valentines for local veterans Jeremy Turley Freelance Reporter It’s undeniable that military service is ingrained in Glenview’s culture and history. As recently as 1995, the Glenview Naval Air Station prepared soldiers to fight for their country. As young men, astronaut Neil Armstrong and former presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush learned their commitment to service at the air base. Over the last two decades, the training sites and landing strips became restaurants and condos. The name changed, as well. It’s now called The Glen. However, Glenview’s history of service has not been lost on the younger generations. Nearly 15 young residents — and a few older ones — turned out to make Valentine’s Day cards for veterans on Jan. 12 at the Glenview Public Library. Using construction paper, scissors, stickers and markers, participants created more than 50 cards with messages of love and gratitude. Oliver Wolf, 11, was the first one in the room and stayed for more than an hour. With a look of concentration displayed on his face, he crafted about 10 cards. Most of them read, “Thank you for your service.” “I thought I could just do something for all those people who served our country,” Wolf said. “If Glenview resident Diane Picciuca creates a valentine during Valentines for Vets on Jan. 12 at the Glenview Public Library. Jeremy Turley/22nd Century Media they didn’t exist, I probably wouldn’t be the person I am now.” Many of the young participants were students at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, which is located just across the street from the library. However, not every cardmaker was of school age. Retiree Diane Picciuca moved to Glenview a few months ago after her husband, a Korean War veteran, died. Picciuca wanted to show gratitude for those who, like her late husband, made a great sacrifice for their country. She saw the Valentines for Vets event in the library’s calendar and decided it would be an excellent way to do just that. “I thought in honor of [my husband], I would like to do this,” Picciuca said. “I know I enjoy receiving a card, and I think it’s wonderful that they’re going to be taking the cards to veterans that probably might not receive one or might not have a family in the area.” Picciuca said her husband never received a card from a stranger thanking him for his service, but that he would have appreciated the thought someone put into it. The cards will go to sick and disabled veterans at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital in Hines, Illinois. The event is part of the weeklong National Salute to Veterans, which overlaps with Valentine’s Day. Leadership at the Glenview Public Library decided to bring back the card-making campaign after a hiatus of a few years because feedback from participants and their parents had been so good, Youth Technology Coordinator Beth Kerns said. While many of the participants are too young to fully grasp the sacrifices made by members of the military, Kerns believes that many of them “get it.” She said Glenview reveres veterans and the military, in part, because of the village’s culture and past. Personally, Kerns sees great value in honoring veterans, especially those who are sick or disabled. “I think it’s important to say to the veterans there that we care and that we thank them,” Kerns said. “We’re thinking of them. They’re not forgotten.” STEM CELL MAGNET THERAPY Now Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield Dr. Angelo Reyes, MD is a Leading Provider of Non-Surgical Treatment Options & Provider for Medicare & Most Insurances Glenview, Highland Park, Vernon Hills, Bloomingdale & Hinsdale Offered by Get Natural Relief from Arthritis & Soft Tissue Pain Relief, Regenerate, Rejuvenate QUALIFIED CANDIDATES: • Diagnosed with Osteoarthritis • Have a Soft Tissue Injury • Want a Non-Steroidal Option • Want to Avoid Surgery • Other Interventions have Failed CLINICAL STUDY: 92.5 % PATIENT SATISFACTION* *Published in American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation PM R 9 (2017) 1236-1243 847.243.6978 Most Appointments available within 48 hours www.PAINfreePAINrelief.com
