The Military Order of the Purple Heart
Department of Minnesota
America's Combat Wounded Veterans
The Purple Heart is the only decoration that attests, without question,
to the bearer having been in combat. It is one for which an individual
cannot be recommended, it can only be earned.
Chartered by Congress in 1958, The Military Order of the Purple Heart is composed of military men and women who received the Purple Heart Medal for wounds suffered in combat. Although our membership is restricted to the combat wounded, we support all veterans and their families with a myriad of nationwide programs by Chapters and National Service Officers.
