The mission of the Military Order of the Purple Heart is 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.

The Order now includes about 43,000 Total members, organized into 6 geographical Regions, 49 State Departments, and 499 Chapters. The Order’s annual operating budget is approximately $10.5 million of which nearly $7.3 million goes to support the Service Program.

Thanks,
