DeSoto Designated as a Purple Heart County

In honor of the brave service members wounded in combat defending our Country's freedom, DeSoto County is officially a Purple Heart County. The Board of County Commissioners proudly approved the designation on August 27, 2018. Commissioners Selph and Mansfield, both veterans, along with Veterans Service Officer Steve Rickard presented the proclamation to Jack Brunton, Jr., department commander of Florida, with the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
