At the Okaloosa Board of County Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, March 6, Military Order of Purple Heart members, Blue Star and Gold Star Mothers of America were on hand to read a proclamation establishing Okaloosa County as the first Purple Heart county in Florida.
“Many of our counties are deserving of this tribute; however, it is
with great pride that I read this proclamation honoring our own Medal of
Honor recipients and Okaloosa County Purple Heart recipients,”
Commissioner Bill Roberts said.
