“We’re proud to be a Purple Heart City! This special designation is one of many ways we express our gratitude to the sons and daughters of our community who’ve given their lives or were wounded in combat defending the freedoms we all enjoy. Join us in saying “thank you” when you see a soldier, veteran, or Gold Star family member.”
