Purple Heart County new designation

May 30th, 2017 by Ken

Thurston County has been named a “Purple Heart County” by the Thurston County Commissioners.

They took that action this Memorial Day week to honor those who have served in the nation’s military and who have been wounded in battle.   “We wanted to honor all of our military both active and retired who live here,” said Commissioner Hutch Hutchings.  We felt this was a good way to do it.”

Signs designating Thurston County as a “Purple Heart County” will begin appearing at all major roads leading into the county
