The Military Order of the Purple Heart

"Boatload of Heroes," will be a 4-day fishing trip dedicated solely for the heroes of our country

In the tradition of honoring or military Purple Heart recipients and Wounded Warriors, MOPH Chapter 0049 has been selected to "lead and manage" the selection of personnel that will make up the "2012 Boatload of Heroes." The "Boatload of Heroes" will honor the memory and prior owner of the luxury sport fisher, EXCEL, Mr. Bill Pool of San Diego, CA.

"Boatload of Heroes," will be a 4-day fishing trip dedicated solely for the heroes of our country. The EXCEL runs out of Fisherman’s Landing in San Diego, CA. The date of the trip is June 16 – June 20, 2012. We will depart at 08:00 a.m. and return around 07:00 a.m. on June 20th.

MOPH Chapter 0049 and the EXCEL owners are canvassing for heroes of all stripe and pedigree. Today’s hero will likely come from: active military duty, veterans, Purple Heart recipients, fire fighters, police officers, paramedics, teachers, and similar categories of heroes. All selected heroes will go 100% free-of-charge. We encourage each respondent to submit a one-page story about why they should be selected for this honor. Selections will be made by the EXCEL ownership and the executives of Chapter 0049. All selections made by the committee shall be final. Submittals are due not-later-than May 25, 2012, 4:00 p.m. (P.S.T.) at Military Order of the Purple Heart, Attn: Ulysses Miller, Adjutant, P.O. Box 1068, Lemon Grove, CA 91946; or, by email to: umiller@cox.net
