Saturday, Mayor Todd Barton declared Crawfordsville a Purple Heart City. Veterans gathered at the Crawfordsville Library for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) banquet ceremony. This ceremony has been a long time coming and the excitment filled the air as veterans celebrated the officially chartered DAV. DAV Benefits Protection Officer, Ron Compton said, “it's taken a lot of work to get here.” Compton credits Gary Bell in heading them in the right direction.
Mayor Barton addressed the veterans with a heartfelt speech of what their sacrifice means to him personally and to our community. Mayor Barton, along with the DAV is helping to make sure these sacrifices do not get forgotten and no veteran slips through the cracks. The Mayor took time to thank all those who serve and convey his appreciation saying, "I don't think we can say it enough, I thank each and every one of you for your service. I am always reminding people, especially our younger people, that we have such an abundance of freedom in this country and we take it for granted and there are those in this world who would take that freedom away very quickly if it were not for people like you stepping forward and defending that freedom . . . so, on behalf of myself and this community; Thank you for your service." 
Barton added, "We are very proud of what’s happening in this community, a lot of good things are happening. I feel very strongly that we do not lose sight of the fact that, that wouldn't be possible without our military and veterans. There are things we could do to make life in our community a little better for veterans, we are exploring that right now and will be working on that in the coming months."
