Parking Spaces for Combat Wounded Veterans Added to Adams County Buildings

wounded-warrior-parking-112915The Adams County Board of Commissioners released plans to include reserved parking at county buildings for United States military veterans who were injured while in service to our country. These reserved parking spaces will be located near handicap parking locations and marked with a sign that carries an image of the Purple Heart medal.

“We’re honored to provide this courtesy to the brave men and women who were injured while in service to our country. They deserve our eternal gratitude and hopefully these parking spaces will provide some level of convenience to them,” said Board Chairman Charles ‘Chaz’ Tedesco.

The signs will be installed at county buildings beginning next week. They were provided to the county at no charge by Wounded Warriors Family Support.

The Purple Heart is the oldest military award still given to U.S. military members. A Purple Heart is awarded in the name of the President to those wounded or killed, while serving, on or after April 5, 1917.
