On Aug. 7, also known as National Purple Heart Day, the Mayor of Glen Cove, Timothy Tenke, along with veterans advocate, Chris Levi, and members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart declared the city of Glen Cove a Purple Heart City.

“On Purple Heart Day, the nation pauses to acknowledge and remember the sacrifices made by the brave men and women in the military, the United Service Organizations website stated. “The Purple Heart medal is presented to service members who have been wounded or killed as a result of enemy action while serving in the U.S. military.”
