BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Buffalo Wild Wings on Airline Dr. has established the first wounded warrior parking spot in Bossier City.

It's not just a parking spot for those with handicap tags. It is painted purple and white, and it is reserved for people who have received a Purple Heart. 

Buffalo Wild Wings store manager Tyler Herrington said the spot was finished Friday.

Other stores around the country are getting involved with the Wounded Warrior parking as well. Herrington says he got the idea from another Buffalo Wild Wings store in Michigan.
