Roland and Earlene Davis met on Valentine's Day in 1947 at a USO dance at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Roland was in the Army; Earlene was his best friend's blind date. Post-blind date switch, post-Dear John letter, they've been together ever since. This Valentine's is the 70th anniversary of the day they met. Let's celebrate!
