National Service Program for the Military Order of the Purple Heart will no longer be closing

 The St. Paul office will continue to advocate for our veterans and will resume with receiving new POA’s and claims from our MN veterans, effective immediately.

 There will be a press release later this week…..

We have received the budget letter from the PH Foundation indicating we have funding for the NSP for the 2018/2019 budget year. With the agreement and commitment of the PH Foundation to fulfill their contractual obligation and concurrence of the National Commander, I am rescinding the NSP Closure Plan. Effective immediately NSOs are advised to start accepting POAs and aiding Veterans and their families with processing VA claims and appeals. I will advise the VA we are and will remain a viable VSO.

This has been a trying period for all of us and my concern was the perceived lose of value of our program and the importance of the service we provide to Veterans. I apologize for the stress this situation created and look forward to rebuilding your trust and confidence as we continue to be the premiere VSO for all Veterans, their spouses and families.
