County Celebrates Purple Heart Designation

County Commissioner Ronald E. Kitchen gathered with members of the Aaron A. Weaver Chapter 776 Military Order of the Purple Heart on Monday to celebrate the Purple Heart designation given to Citrus County. Road signs have been permanently displayed at all entrances to the County recognizing this special honor.

The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on August 25, 2015, recognizing Citrus County as a Purple Heart County. The Purple Heart is a combat award exclusively for those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who are killed, died of wounds or wounded by an enemy instrument of war.

The Purple Heart flag is flown with pride at the Lecanto Government Building and at the Citrus County Courthouse.
