LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Ivy Tech's Lafayette campus is now offering reserved parking for wounded warriors.
The four signs were installed Monday morning. The goal is to give wounded warriors closer parking access to campus.
Veterans' Affairs Coordinator Fred Duttlinger said they came up with the idea about a month ago.
"We recognize what they've done and that this is a small little way of giving them some recognition once they've come home and they're in civilian clothes and trying to reacclimate to the classrooms," said Duttlinger.
Wounded Veteran Justin Howton said installing the signs is a small gesture that means a lot.
"It's not just a sign to us," said Howton. "To us, it's more of a message saying that we support you."
Duttlinger said it cost a couple hundred dollars to install the signs. He said they're hoping to install the signs at other Ivy Tech campuses around the state
