Combat Wounded Warriors
A Salute to Veterans at Lehigh Valley International Airport.
The Airport has dedicated (3) parking space to Combat Wounded Veterans in the Aero Club Parking Lot (located adjacent to Short Term Parking). Three parking spots are painted “purple” and have parking signs notifying passengers of the special designation.
*Combat Wounded Veterans aren’t required to contact the Airport Authority for use of the parking spaces.
In November 2016, the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority (LNAA) in coordination with Wounded Warriors Family Support held a special dedication ceremony to unveil these special parking spaces. Wounded Warriors Family Support said there are an estimated 1.8 million Purple Heart recipients and combat wounded service members who have transitioned back into civilian life. The “free” parking signs are placed in the parking lots of businesses, churches, schools and colleges, government and medical facilities.
Thank you to all those men and women who are currently serving or who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
