A Los Angeles businessman who began a national letter writing campaign during the Gulf War in 1991 that turned into a national campaign called, "Valentines For Troops" is ready to begin his deliveries this week to troops all over the world.

Last year, Michael Fleming, backed by his partners, David Fleming (his brother0 and Paul Kramer, delivered over 1,100,000 Valentines to service members stationed at home and abroad. Hundreds of thousands made it over to those stationed in Iraq.

"We sorted enough Valentines to fill two semi-trucks last year which was quite unbelievable," said Michael Fleming, founder of the campaign. "This year I was held back by business concerns, but we will still have quite a load going out," added Fleming.
