The Robert E. Bush chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart will hold a dedication ceremony at 10 a.m., Aug. 7 at Riverside National Cemetery for a new Purple Heart plaque recently installed at the cemetery’s amphitheater. Aug. 7 is Purple Heart Day.

California State Sen. Mike Morrell will address the crowd. The program by the Redlands-based chapter will also include a rifle salute, the playing of “Taps,” and a flag folding ceremony.

The program will take place in the amphitheater of the cemetery, which is at 22495 Van Buren Ave., Riverside.
