Vet parking home depot

This sign, already installed in the Home Depot parking lot, could soon have replicas around town. Janell Sterner, Vice Mayor of Payson, hopes to help Purple Heart veteran and volunteer sign installer Kevin Carpenter put up more signs around town.

In honor of Veterans Day, The Home Depot is the first business in town to install both Purple Heart and Super Hero parking signs.

Purple Heart veteran Kevin Carpenter, retired sergeant first class, donated the signs and asked Home Depot store manager Shawn Minker if they could be installed in the parking lot.

Carpenter noticed similar signs in the Valley and decided purchasing some would be a great way to honor veterans and first responders.

Carpenter would like to see similar parking signs installed throughout Payson and will donate not only the signs, but also the time to install them at businesses.
