Last year, Texas Land Commissioner and VLB Chairman George P. Bush initiated the 100 for 100 campaign. The program is a special way to honor Texas State Veterans Homes residents celebrating their 100th birthday by ensuring they receive at least 100 birthday cards.

Since November 2019, the public has helped celebrate three Veterans’ centennial birthdays — Janice Bradley in McAllen, Lyndoll Hurley in Bonham and Joseph Broussard in Houston. Each Veteran received more than 1,000 birthday cards. They came from all over the country and even from overseas.

Lyndoll Hurley

We appreciate everyone who sent a card. You made these World War II heroes 100th birthdays even more special!

Stay tuned to our social media channels to hear about other Veterans born in the 1920s who deserve to be celebrated for their service to our country and a milestone birthday.
