Parking Spot Painted Completely Purple, here is What it Means… This is Important
These purple spots are starting to become a growing movement for a good reason – they’re designated parking for our nation’s wounded veterans. Naturally, wounded vets are also able to use regular handicap spaces, but this is just an added gesture to honor those who have given up so much without a second thought.
The purple parking space was created by the Wounded Warriors Family Support organization, and businesses wishing to participate can get free parking signs from them. The purple color is, of course, an homage to the Purple Heart medal that is given to those soldiers who have died or been wounded in combat.
