Hartselle Enquirer

Purple Heart ceremony scheduled

By Staff
Special to the Enquirer
Each August Chapter 2212, the Finis J. Self Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart sponsors a memorial service to honor the fallen warriors of Cullman and Morgan Counties.
Those being honored either gave their life in one of our nation’s wars or received a Purple Heart for wounds received in combat and passed on later in life.
The service will be conducted at the Purple Heart Memorial in Sparkman Park in Hartselle Aug. 9 beginning at 10 a.m.
During the ceremony each name is read aloud accompanied by the sounding of a bell and a Purple Heart flag is presented to the next of kin or a friend if they are present.
In addition to the Purple Heart memorial and its list of fallen warriors and Purple Heart recipients the memorial has a Veteran’s Walk open to all veterans.
Brigadier General Genaro “Gino” Dellarocco of Redstone Arsenal will be the guest speaker.
The Alabama Vietnam Wall will be on site.
The Military Order of the Purple Heart is unique among military fraternal groups. All of its members have spilt blood in combat with an enemy of the United States.
The service is open to the public.
