The Florida Senate and House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation in 2012 establishing an annual Purple Heart Day in Florida, to be recognized on August 7th of each year.

In May 2012 Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a law establishing August 7 of every year as Purple Heart Day in Florida.
