Area politicians marked Veterans Day 2013 by celebrating the opening of the Purple Heart Trail along Highway 101 in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblymember Das Williams, and Supervisor Salud Carbajal met Ventura County Supervisor Kathy Long and Commander Michael Cook, of Chapter 750 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, at Carpinteria’s Rincon Beach Park, where they unveiled signs to be posted along the route. This new stretch, which makes the trail continuous from Monterey through Ventura County, joins a national collection of trails honoring those who received the award.
