(WESTGATE) - In conjunction with Armed Forces Day and Military Appreciation Month, WestGate Academy and WestGate Technology Park will unveil two newly purposed parking spaces Thursday at 11 a.m., in a special ceremony in conjunction with the Romans Warrior Foundation.

The parking spaces will honor those who have served our country; one space will be specifically for Purple Heart recipients and the other space will be designated for all Wounded Warriors.

Several speakers and representatives will be in attendance, including Brian Romans, founder of the Romans Warrior Foundation, a not-for-profit organization whose stated overall goal is to "Provide Veterans with a cost free, theraputic weekend retreat.

The parking spaces are to bring awareness and to perform a relatively simple gesture to demonstrate appreciation of our Nation's heroes.

Romans is currently seeking to raise funds to purchase land for the Foundation's retreat, and has a GoFundMe account which can be visited atĀ, keyword "romanswarriorfoundation"

Also appearing will be Brenda Goff from U.S. Senator Dan Coats' office, Jerry Parkinson from U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly's office, Larry Ordner from U.S. Congressman Larry Bucshon's office and Indiana State Senator Mark Messmer will be playing the national anthem on trumpet.

The ceremony will include the speakers, a reveal of the designated parking spaces, and an explanation of the purpose and the need for the spaces.

Cake will be served at the ceremonies' conclusion, and the public is welcome and invited to attend.
