Some third grade students at Bellamy Elementary in Rome are sending a special greeting to our troops overseas.

Shelby Mason's Students created Valentines Day cards they Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi collected and will send to an Army unit in Afghanistan.

Mason said it was a great opportunity to teach the children about the sacrifices made by American troops.

The Valentines were designed and created by each student and included a message of thanks and support for the soldiers.
