ABOUT PURPLE HEART FOUNDATION:
The Purple Heart was created by George Washington back in 1782. It is awarded to members of the United States armed services who have been wounded by an instrument of war by the hands of the enemy or killed in action or die as a result of wounds received in action.
Based in Annandale, VA, Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation was founded to foster an environment of goodwill and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans, promote patriotism, support necessary legislative initiatives, and most importantly, provide service to all veterans and their families with a myriad of nation-wide programs by Chapters and National Service Officers.
The Purple Heart Foundation is the fundraising arm of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. They provide support to veterans and their families through grants and outreach programs and donations to organizations whose programs help veterans.
Veterans returning home can face emotional, medical and financial challenges. The Purple Heart Foundation exists to lessen these trials and give veterans the homecoming they deserve.
Purple Heart - "Honoring Their Sacrifice With Our Service.”
