Morning/Afternoon everyone! Trust you all are enjoying this fine day 🙂 I received word that today is Purple Heart Day. What is Purple Heart Day?
It is a day that we remember and recognize those people willing to serve our country, no matter the price. The Purple Heart is given to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.
Today isn’t about supporting a war, a political party, or to prove that one person is more patriotic than the other. Today is about remembering those who gave their lives, who sacrificed to keep us free, for those who gave their all for you and me. Love and support the people who continue to make us free, extend compassion to the families who have lost someone due to their valor.
In loving memory of all the men and women who have fought bravely for the United States of America. We salute you and we will never forget you!
