BOSTON (CBS) – If you see a purple light this evening, it’s because Friday is Purple Heart Day in Massachusetts and across the country.

Several buildings and bridges will be lit up to honor Purple Heart heroes. The nation’s oldest military award is presented to any member of the United States Armed Forces who has been wounded or killed in the line of duty.

The Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services has posted this list of locations that will be participating. They ask that you post a photo using #PurpleHeartDayMA
