Congressman Brian Higgins is presenting a new way to honor those killed or wounded in combat with the introduction of the Purple Heart Flag Act.

It would require the display of a Purple Heart Flag at federal facilities such as war memorials, VA hospitals and national cemeteries and other federal buildings. The Purple Heart flag would be required by congressional law to be flown on specific days of year such as Memorial Day, Flag Day - June 14, 4th of July, Purple Heart Day - August 7th, Veterans Day and other days to be considered.

Higgins says, "Americans need to be reminded of the sacrifices our veterans have made. Raising the Purple Heart Flag would provide a visual reminder of the wounds our warriors endured and the soldiers who have laid down their lives to uphold the liberties this nation was founded on and continues to hold dear."

Over one million military personnel have been killed in America's wars throughout our history along with millions more receiving combat wounds in combat of wars. Now is the time for all Americans to show their appreciation to those who sacrificed the most in our efforts to keep our freedoms and principals so that all Americans will always live in peace to live in the pursuit of happiness.
