BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - Starting Thursday, Battle Creek has special parking spots reserved for men and women who have been injured in combat.

The financial consulting group Hilliard Lyons sponsored the first five signs and plans to buy five more.  The spots will be reserved at seven facilities. The signs are at City Hall, the Department of Public Works, Full Blast, Willard Beach, the Intermodal Transportation Center, C.O. Brown Stadium at Bailey Park and the Binder Park Golf Course.

Mayor Dave Walters says he saw similar signs in another city and wanted to bring them to Battle Creek as a way to say 'thank you' to those who have served our country.

The signs were officially unveiled Thursday morning.
