FOX - People across the country are mobilizing to honor wounded veterans in a special new way.
Armed with purple paint and rollers, volunteers are increasingly going to work to help designate pre-arranged parking spaces for men and women who were injured in combat.
The program was introduced by the Wounded Warriors Family Support organization, which hands out free parking signs to any establishment that wants them.
Local stores, churches, schools and public facilities have asked to put up purple signs of their own, paving way for a trend now “stretching from coast to coast,” said the group on its website.
