Purple Heart Day

calcAug 07, 2017

If you see OATI’s Microgrid Technology Center displaying purple and gold today, we’re honoring Purple Heart Day.

In 1782, General George Washington created the Purple Heart Medal. The medal is awarded to soldiers injured or killed while serving our country.

Today, people are encouraged to pay their respects and thank soldiers for their service. The lights are for the brave men and women who risk their lives fighting for our freedom.
