The Purple Heart is a decoration awarded to military servicemen and servicewomen that have been wounded or killed in action. Melrose is paying tribute to the heroes of our community that have been awarded the Purple Heart by becoming a Purple Heart City and designating a Purple Heart Trail. The Purple Heart flag will fly proudly tomorrow at City Hall. The sacrifices of our Purple Heart residents and all other Americans harmed while fighting for our country will always be remembered and honored.
