Over 600 People Came to Show Their Love and Appreciation to 13 Purple Heart Medal Recipients and 12 Gold Star Families
at Old McMicky's Farm Barns and Beer Craft Beer Festival
To all of the men and women of our military, past and present,
And to all of your families who share in your service and sacrifice,
For protecting our country and for keeping our families safe, Thank you.
It is common to say we came together to honor those in the military and their families.
Really, the feeling of honor that we all felt that evening was the highest standard of honor brought by those brave individuals who served in our military and their families, and by their presence there that evening.
For anyone who may not be as familiar.
The Purple Heart Medal, our nation's oldest military award, is one of the most recognized and respected medals awarded to members of the U.S. armed forces who incur injuries sustained in battle. The Purple Heart Medal is also awarded posthumously. The family members of those who so courageously and selflessly have made the ultimate sacrifice and given their lives in service to our country are called Gold Star families.
Although we all may have and are entitled to our different beliefs, We all sleep under their blanket of freedom and safety.
Attendees spontaneously came up to show Purple Heart Recipients and Gold Star families their appreciation and love. It was beautiful.
Thank You to the all of the individual military members and Gold Star families who gave us the privilege of hosting them at the farm.
