Every November names of veterans are added to the Purple Heart honor roll during the Veterans Dinner.
The honor roll recognizes the service of military veterans who were wounded in action and were either born and raised in Madison County, entered the service in Madison County or have lived in Madison County the last three years.
This year’s five enrollees in the Purple Heart honor roll include Eugene Cope, Robert Davis, Charles Gill, David Roesler and Michael Williams. All will also be inducted into the Madison County Military Heritage Commission’s Hall of Heroes that evening.
The dinner is Nov. 8 at 6 p.m. in the Von Braun Center South Hall.
