Purple Heart Display (thru June 6th) 
Members of the Winston-Salem local chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (Jim Schaller & Dave Taylor )and the Ladies Auxiliary of the MOPH (Judy Taylor & Carol Schaller) have put up a fantastic display at the Kernersville branch.
The variety of items includes: stamps, photos, and an actual purple heart medal to give a snapshot of pride in this high military honor. A Purple Heart is awarded for bravery in battle which resulted in the honoree’s death or injury in service to their unit and country.
This is be an excellent educational tool for the community as we honor those who have given everything in service to this nation.
