Have you seen any purple parking spots lately?
These designated parking spots have been making an appearance all around the country. But what do they mean? The purple parking bays have been designated for the men and women who have served and been injured in combat. Our veterans have given so much for the protection of our country, it should fill you with pride to know that they are back here amongst us. The least we can do is provide them with as much gratitude as possible when they return home.
Many soldiers return home with life-changing injuries, and trying to live a normal life again can prove a huge hurdle. The road to recovery after war isn ever an easy one. Any help towards making the transition as easy as possible is definitely worth our while. It is the least we can do. The organization named the The Wounded Warriors reported the following:
There are an estimated 1.8 million Purple Heart recipients, combat wounded service members who have transitioned back into civilian life. The organization came up with ‘Combat Wounded Parking Signs’ for local businesses across the nation who wanted to participate in the offering up of reserved parking for those injured in combat.
The parking spots, some of which have a purple heart image with the words “reserved, combat wounded” are a terrific tribute and constant reminder to us all of the sacrifices thousands of our men and women have made for the greater good. They have served us well in the military and they have done there bit to protect us from harm.
