Herkimer County is being designated a Purple Heart County. Soon everyone coming or going to the county will know it. That's because large purple signs are being placed on all roads passing through Herkimer. It's all to recognize those who have died or were injured serving their country. 20-some Purple Heart Recipients turned-out for this ceremony at the Herkimer County Building this afternoon. "I think it'll be great for the veterans, it is an honor, it really is," said Kenneth Griffin, a Purple Heart recipient. New York's Military Order of the Purple Heart" organization hopes we're the first state in the country to have every county designated a Purple Heart County.
