Excerpt from KING-5 TV News:

The U.S. military awards Purple Hearts to service members wounded in the line of duty and is thought of as a symbol of sacrifice.

The state of Washington is now awarding its version of the Purple Heart to school districts providing assistance to a population that knows something about sacrifice: students from military families.

Twelve districts in the state received the award from the state’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). The school districts are: Bremerton, Central Kitsap, Cheney, Clover Park, Medical Lake, North Mason, North Thurston, Oak Harbor, Peninsula, Steilacoom Historical, Sumner-Bonney Lake, and Yelm Community Schools.

Districts were recognized for offering services like expanded child care, military appreciation and recognition events, and counseling for students dealing with having to move every couple of years.
