ACR 152: National Purple Heart Trail

The Purple Heart Trail was established in 1992 by the congressionally sanctioned military order of the Purple Heart to be a symbolic trail throughout all 50 states to commemorate and honor all men and women who have given their lives in combat while serving in the U.S. armed forces. The National Purple Heart Trail originates in Mount Vernon, Virginia, and traverses the United States to California. This trail creates a visual reminder to those who use the road system that others have paid a high price for their freedom to travel and live in a free society. In 2019 the City of Marysville adopted a proclamation to designate Marysville Highways as part of the National Purple Heart Trail.
