History

Chartered in 1957, the Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation is the fundraising engine of Military Order of the Purple Heart membership organization. The Purple Heart medal originated from our country’s first President, George Washington’s respect and acknowledgement of veterans’ combat valor with awarding the Merit Badge, which today is widely known as the Purple Heart.
