Danberry Recognizes Purple Heart Recipients #PurpleHeartDay

As we get to know our Danberry family on a deeper level, we are grateful for our 300 plus motivated, intelligent and giving agents.  We owe a great part of our agents’ success to their families.

We discovered that several of our agents and corporate employees have very courageous family members.  So brave that they were honored with a Purple Heart medal.  In recognition of National Purple Heart Day, we would like to showcase just a few of our extended Danberry family members.

Please take a moment today to thank a fellow soldier, active or retired, for their service.   Our country would not be where it is today without their dedication, skills and sacrifice.
