The Town of Belmont will honor and observe National Purple Heart Day on Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 10 a.m.
Just where will depend on the weather. If the rain expected to arrive around noon stays away, the ceremony will take place at the main entrance of the Belmont Public Library, 336 Concord Ave.
If the waterworks starts early, the celebration will take place at the Beech Street Center, 266 Beech St.
Residents of Belmont, veterans and their family members and in particular all of those who are Purple Heart recipients are invited to attend this special event.
The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the United States armed forces who are wounded by an enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action.
