Farmingville, NY – On July 12, Supervisor Romaine (third from right) and Councilman LaValle (right) were joined by Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore (left) and members of Santora/Bonacasa Memorial VFW Post 400 of Farmingville to unveil a Purple Heart parking space in their lot. The parking space is designated specifically for service veterans who were awarded the Purple Heart for being wounded in combat. There are an estimated 1.8 million Purple Heart recipients who have transitioned back into civilian life. The Town of Brookhaven and Legislator Muratore worked together with the Wounded Warrior project and the VFW post to acquire and install the sign in their parking lot.
Supervisor Romaine said, “Reserving a parking space for our wounded warriors is the right thing to do in recognition of the sacrifices they have made for our freedom. I thank the VFW for leading the way and providing the space at their post.”
Councilman LaValle said, “I am always proud and humbled to stand with veterans who have served our country with honor. This parking space is but a small thank you for all they have done in every corner of the world.”
