I want to thank Rep. Nancy Dahlstrom and the other cosponsors of House Bill 274 for their efforts in championing legislation establishing Purple Heart Day. As a former member of the military, recognition of those who have been wounded in a war zone or have given their lives in the service of their country is extremely important, not only to them, but to the loved ones. Purple Heart Day will be a reminder to us to be thankful and appreciative of those who put their lives in danger every day for our freedom.
Lt. Governor Craig E. Campbell
