CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Veterans and active duty military have letters of gratitude from young students that were delivered by Pony Express.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/29It8pR) 13 riders carried the 272 letters on horseback for the Saturday delivery at Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Third through fifth graders wrote the letters thanking the recipients.

Most of the riders were from the Southeast Wyoming Pony Express Association.

Many participated in the National Pony Express Association’s re-ride that ended in June.

The re-riders attempt to travel the same old routes over 10 days.
