There was a special early Valentine's Day at the San Francisco VA Medical Center on Thursday.

San Mateo County students sent more than 3,000 valentines to veterans.

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, was behind the outpouring of support.

She says she was inspired by columnist Ann Landers who encouraged her readers to send cards to veterans every Valentine's Day.
