A viral photo on Twitter of World War II veteran Joe Cuba, of Witchita Falls, TX, holding up a sign requesting a 100 birthday cards for his 100th birthday on March 2, 2019 has caught the attention of one Big Spring resident who’s made it his mission to ensure that this veteran gets more than what he wished.
2012 Big Spring High School graduate Israel Valdez is working to collect over 100 cards for Cuba’s birthday on Saturday. Valdez has never met Cuba but told KBest News that after selflessly serving his country, Cuba deserved at least that.
Drop off locations in Big Spring for Cuba’s birthday cards have been established at the following places:
KBest Media - 608 Johnson
Inkspot - 610 S. Gregg
OneMain Financial- 1900 S. Gregg, Suite B
The last day to drop off birthday cards will be on Wednesday, Feb. 27th, so that the collection of cards can be mailed together. You can also check out the shared post on our KBest Media Facebook page with an address for Cuba.
