Joseph Bucko is from Swansea and will soon turn 102. What does he want for his birthday? Cards…from anyone. Last month, his daughter JoAnn had posted in a Swansea Facebook group asking for cards for her father who is a World War II veteran.
As of February 13th, he’s received 460 cards. He’s also received batches of cards: from local elementary and middle schools, and from people all across the country, many thanking him for his service. Joseph says that he feels very important, and he didn’t know he was important until he got the cards.” Joseph turns 102 on March 20th, so there’s still time to send a card if you want to. If you would like to send a card, here’s the address: Joseph Bucko 43 Laurel Ave. Swansea, MA 02777
