Parking spot designated for veterans at Region 8 sheriff's department

GREENE COUNTY,AR (KAIT) - The Greene County Sheriff's Office says ''thank you'' to our veterans.

Wounded veterans now have their own parking spot at the sheriff's office.

It's marked with a Purple Heart combat sign.

Sheriff David Carter says this is something they've worked on for a while and are happy to see it in place.

"I spent five years overseas working with the military," Sheriff Carter said. "I've seen what they went through and this is just a small part of something I can do to pay them back."

The signs are available from Wounded Warriors Family Support.

They are free. You just have to pay the shipping cost.
