Valdosta, GA - They've served their country, and now they continue to serve their community.

Because of their work with the Valdosta Habitat for Humanity, the organization has designated a special parking space just for war veterans and Purple Heart heroes.

Valdosta Mayor John Gayle helped dedicate the Wounded Warrior parking sign Thursday morning. The sign and designated parking spot sit right in front of the building on Cypress Road in Valdosta.

Warren Scoby with the Military Order of Purple Heart, Tifton, Georgia, says, "It is important because we recognize these folks for doing all they're doing and being like we are today, we're free; we can do anything we want to."

The veterans say they've helped build 231 Habitat homes since 1981.

The Wounded Warrior Parking sign was dedicated on Thursday in honor of Memorial Day Monday.
