Signed into effect on July 21st by Commissioner Brittany Pittman and the City of Chatsworth’s Mayor, Dan Penland, the proclamation designates that date as a day to remember those who have suffered to protect the freedoms of our homes. Commissioner Pittman stated on the day the proclamation was signed, “It’s so important for us to remember and to recognize what the members of our very own community have done for each and every one of us that it would have been shameful if we had not taken the opportunity to honor Murray County’s Purple Heart Medal recipients.”

These men and women of our community deserve recognition of the sacrifices they have made for their country, their fellow citizens, and their families. Many men and women have returned with scars, whether visible or hidden, but we must not forget those who never came home at all. A resounding thank you goes to those who have received a Purple Heart Medal, for you suffered for your people and for the idea that every person on this Earth should be free. Therefore, if you see a Purple Heart Medal recipient on any day, do not neglect to thank them for their sacrifices, but especially do not forget on July 21st.
