Thanks to all who helped with Purple Heart ceremony

We would like to thank everyone involved in the Purple Heart ceremony on Tuesday, August 7, designating Marietta as a “Purple Heart City.”

As a community we are honored by this distinction. “Purple Heart City” signage will be going up at the entrances to Marietta shortly.

Thank you to the Military Order of the Purple Heart #743, American Legion #64, Veterans of Foreign Wars #5108, the Marine Corp League, Regis Kern, Jonathan Hupp, the Marietta City Council and Mayor Joe Matthews for helping to bestow this noteworthy element to Marietta and for honoring our military Purple Heart veterans on Tuesday.

Mariesa and Dan McCloud
