Handicapped parking signs allow people who need it, a closer parking spot to a store or business. When I heard that Vets who have problems but don't qualify for a handicapped sticker or license plate, I was a little angry. Then I heard Wounded Warriors created a purple sign that you could put in place of your handicapped sign to allow a space for a Vet.

Today, the sign I ordered came in so I put it up at the station.To make it clear, Wounded Vets may still use the handicapped areas, but it’s about honor to create these spots and a thank you to the men and women who have served our country.

If other businesses want to add a purple spot or two they can contact the wounded warriors at their website, or call (402) 502-7557 for more information.
