CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Cape Coral veteran is starting a grassroots campaign to help a local soldier.

Vietnam vet, Bruce Millier is starting the Get Well Card Project.

He's trying to get as many get well cards and notes of support to send to Corey Kent.

Private Kent, is a Cape soldier seriously wounded in Afghanistan earlier this summer.

Bruce Miller is asking for the city council's support and plans on asking for help from the school district.

He wants to go in school classrooms so children can write letters of encouragement.

"Support is very important. It will help him heal a lot quicker," Miller said.

Hiller plans on talking to Cape Coral City Council next week.

He anticipates the whole project taking up to six months.
