VFW Post No. 9399, 133 N. Saguaro Drive in Apache Junction, has a new parking spot designated for use by Purple Heart recipients.
It was accomplished by Army veteran and Eagle Riders Vice President Dalton Perez and Sergeant-in-Arms Sarah Buehrer. The parking spot is reserved for solely combat-wounded veterans.
“(W)e’re looking to keep the momentum going to challenge our local businesses to install a few more especially with a heavy veteran presence in Apache Junction,” Mr. Perez said.
