Okaloosa Florida's first Purple Heart county

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.
