Welcome to Chapter #27, Military Order of the Purple Heart, (M.O.P.H.)
Chartered by Act of Congress For Combat Wounded Veterans in 1958, The Military Order of the Purple Heart is composed of military men and women who received the Purple Heart Medal for wounds suffered in combat. Although our membership is restricted to the combat wounded, we support all veterans and their families with a myriad of nation-wide programs by Chapters and National Service Officers.
