Reference: Floridaís Third Official Purple Heart Day, August 7, 2014
During the Florida 2012 Legislative Session, the Florida Senate and House of Representatives unanimously passed Bills designating August 7 of each year as Florida Purple Heart Day. Governor Rick Scott signed these combined Bills into Law on May 4, 2012.
According to the Purple Heart Day Statute, each year the Governor and Cabinet are asked to sign a Resolution declaring August 7 as Purple Heart Day.
Chapter 758 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart will host the Third Official Florida Purple Heart Day Banquet on the evening of August 7, 2014 at 6:00 PM. The Banquet will be held at the Capital City Country Club, 1601 Golf Terrace Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32301. See the attached Banquet reservation form.
We request your participation in this event where all Floridians will proudly honor all those who have been wounded in combat and those who were killed in battle defending our freedom and our way of life in the United States of America.
Yours in Patriotism,
