Fraternity and Fellowship
You can meet and relate to a group of veterans who have the common bond of being wounded in combat and recognized for that sacrifice.
Pride of Membership
Your membership keeps alive the history and ideals for which you were awarded the Purple Heart from its original inception by General George Washington to America’s citizen soldiers of today.
Regular meetings are held throughout the country and a MOPH Chapter is usually within a convenient distance from your home. Chapters engage in numerous social and helping activities – centered on veterans and their families, particularly those being treated at VA facilities.
Each year MOPH holds a National Convention for the purpose of renewing goals, ideas, and electing National Officers. This Convention ensures that every member is directly involved in major decisions affecting the Order. There is always a full roster of activities for members and their families. Between the official activities of the Convention, there is time for relaxation and a chance to renew old friendships and make new ones.
MOPH has a scholarship program for members, spouses, and direct descendants (children, grandchildren, etc.) that helps ease the cost of college or trade school education.
MOPH represents you in the Nation’s capital, ensuring that the voice of the combat wounded is heard in Congress, at the Department of Defense, and at the Veterans Administration. As a member, you will be able to participate in MOPH sponsored campaigns for veteran causes, worthwhile endeavors that increase self-worth.
The Purple Heart Magazine
The official magazine of MOPH is distributed six times a year for member’s enjoyment. Each issue brings a series of timely and well-written articles about some of the activities of The Order around the country. Members have written to say that they look forward to receiving the Magazine. The cost of your subscription is included in your modest dues payment.
MOPH maintains this website for members with useful information on veteran affairs in general and MOPH activities in particular. Details on various MOPH programs, membership forms, and access to the Supply Room are some of its features.
MOPH Supply Room

The Department of MN has always paid the $50.00 now as a department we are asking the individual to pay $50.00, the assigned Chapter to pay $50.00 and the Department will pay $100.00 for each new Purple Heart Member or Associate Member..
