WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio Air Force base plans to join the Purple Heart Trail community as the first active-duty Purple Heart Base.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will have a public designation ceremony at the National Museum of the United States Air Force to commemorate the moment Tuesday morning.

WDTN reports Col. Thomas Sherman of the 88th Air Base Wing will read and accept the proclamation at Carney Auditorium.

The Purple Heart Trail includes roads, highways, bridges and other structures that form a tribute to those who have been awarded the Purple Heart.
