Each year the nation pauses to remember and pay homage to the brave men and women who were wounded or paid the ultimate sacrifice defending the freedoms of all Americans.
The City of Grove City observes National Purple Heart Day Wednesday, Aug. 7 at Henceroth Park, 2075 Mallow Lane, behind Jackson Middle School. All are invited to stop by the park to honor and show your appreciation to Purple Heart recipients and their families.
The Purple Heart Flag will be raised and American flags will be placed at the Purple Heart Walk in Henceroth Park to honor the heroic individuals who received the medal. Grove City is a Purple Heart City, in recognition of the community’s commitment to those killed and wounded in combat.
