“ The Combat Wounded Designated Parking ‘ sign are one small way we can give back to those who have given their best for our community. I commend the Town of Evans Senior Center for signing up and designating a parking space at their building for our Purple Heart veterans, “ said Assemblyman Mickey Kearns.
“ I believe this award demonstrates how our military service men and women love our country and their fellow comrades. In the field they have to count on their comrades to have their back and “ Thank God” they do. The situations our military personnel have to deal on a daily basis are frightening at times. They fight and provide our country with safety and freedom. As their country we should recognize all of them and provide these symbols of gratitude for their service as with the Purple Heart Parking sign, “ said Veronica Sullivan , Director of Town of Evans Senior Center.
Assemblyman Kearns also honored Purple Heart veteran, Russell D. Ward with a NYS Certificate of Recognition for his service in the Army during the Vietnam War at the unveiling Parking sign ceremony at the Evans Senior Center.
