The City of Broken Arrow will proclaim itself to be a Purple Heart City, in a ceremony held in Veterans Park on Tuesday, August 8. The ceremony will be held at 7p. Veterans Park is located at 1111 S. Main St.

By becoming a Purple Heart City, we as a community proclaim support and appreciation for our wounded and fallen veterans and their families, as well as our country’s active and retired military around the world.
