PUEBLO WEST – The city of Pueblo is the “Home of Heroes” for all of its Medal of Honor recipients over the years, now Pueblo West has been designated as a “Purple Heart Community” by the “Military Order of the Purple Heart”.

The Pueblo West Metro Board made the designation official at its meeting on Tuesday night.

Jay Michael Baker with the Metro District told News5 that there are so many veterans who call Pueblo West home that it is important to find ways to honor their service and sacrifice and to promote the veteran community.

You may recall that last November, C.S.U.-Pueblo received the same honor and was designated as a “Purple Heart Campus”. Here at News5 we honor and remember all the great veterans across the Pikes Peak region who have given so much to make this great country of ours, free.

Remember, see a vet, thank a vet.
