10-4-05 - The award given for soldiers wounded or killed in the line of duty will now be seen up and down Interstate 35 through Texas. Called the Purple Heart Trail, signs are already going up.
More than 500 of the signs will dot the highway from Gainesville to Laredo.
Governor Rick Perry signed the bill into action in June. The Purple Heart organization in each county is responsible for raising the money for their sign. Cooke county will be one of the first to put one up.
