National Purple Heart Day
Today is National Purple Heart Day. On this day, we want to remember and honor the brave men and women who were either wounded on the battlefield or paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives. We have a few members of our agency that are Purple Heart Recipients and Sheriff Carmine Marceno is proud to have them on board with us.
Lieutenant Gus Vallejo, a Marine, was awarded in 2012 from his service in Iraq in 2003. Deputy First Class Jason Ward, Deputy Kyle Butler, and VOICE Member David Schwab were also Purple Heart Recipients.
