The Military Order of the Purple Heart is unique among all veteran service organizations in that our membership is comprised entirely of combat veterans who were wounded on the world’s battlefields while serving our country in uniform. For this sacrifice they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal.

Object of our Order
-By Patriotism we mean true allegiance to the government of the United States of America and fidelity to its Constitution and Laws.
-Fraternity requires that we attend all meetings of our Chapter if at all possible, to keep alive our contacts with fellow Patriots, to aid in the deliberations, and to offer suggestions for the good of the Order.
Historical and Educational
-Our aim is to keep alive the memory of our founding fathers and to honor the memory of General George Washington, who instituted the Purple Heart on August 7, 1782, at Newburgh-on-the-Hudson in the State of New York.
Service to the Community
-The hallmark of the MOPH is its programs that improve the lives of veterans, their families, and the communities in which we live.
In all cases, it’s not about WHO WE ARE, it’s about WHAT WE DO to make our cities, our states, and our Nation a better place to live and work.
