Our Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart is active; we stay busy throughout the year with activities and fundraising drives with one goal: serving fellow veterans. Suppose you’re ready to continue your service to others, similarly as in the military. In that case, you are invited to join our Chapter of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and actively serve your fellow veterans. Recipients who apply for membership may be Active Duty, Reserve, or Discharged (Honorable or General).
Additionally, our by-laws permit family members of recipients or deceased recipients to become an Associate Member. In either case, approvals from National Headquarters and supporting documents such as orders and DD-214s/DD-215s must be submitted as a condition of membership. Anyone awarded the Purple Heart may apply for a Life Membership in the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
Purple Heart recipients from all wars are accepted in our Chapter. An Act of Congress charters us, and we are the only organization in which All our members are combat-wounded veterans. As a Purple Heart recipient, YOU are welcome here, and we all appreciate the sacrifices you have made for our great nation – thanks for serving your country!
Those of you who are not members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) but were awarded the Purple Heart for wounds can get a Life Membership online for only $50. To take advantage of this $50 Life membership offer, please Join MOPH.
Associate Memberships are also offered to relatives of persons who received the Purple Heart (either living or deceased) for wounds while serving with the US military. To be an Associate member, one must be prepared to document that their relative, i.e., father, mother, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, etc., received one or more Purple Hearts – usually, a DD-214 will be enough evidence. Still, the actual orders are the best documentation. Remember, you will honor them and their service to this great country when you do this.
