Farmingville, NY - On Monday, August 14, 2017 Supervisor Romaine and Councilman Kevin LaValle joined with AM Vets Post 48 of Ronkonkoma to unveil a new Purple Heart Parking Space at 660 Hawkins Avenue Ronkonkoma. At the request of AM Vets Post 48, the Town of Brookhaven donated and installed the Purple Heart Parking sign. The Town of Brookhaven was able to acquire the sign through the Wounded Warriors Family Support Organization.
There are an estimated 1.8 million Purple Heart recipients, combat wounded service members who have transitioned back into civilian life. They have made great sacrifices to ensure our freedoms but often go unrecognized. The Purple Heart Parking establishments serve as a way of honoring and recognizing these veterans.
