In remembrance


Romulus officials recently 

celebrated the designation of the city as a Purple Heart 

Community. The designation as a Purple Heart City is an official recognition of those in military service who have been wounded or who have made the ultimate sacrifice in combat with a 

declared enemy of the United States of America. The Purple Heart is specifically a combat decoration and it is the oldest national military medal. It was first created by General George Washington in 1782 and was then known as the Badge of 

Military Merit.
