The “Military Order of the Purple Heart” Golf Classic:  In past years our Purple Heart Golf Classic has raised almost $600,000.00. We have not held the tournament in the last several years. Thank you to our past title sponsor, the Empower Coalition, and to all of the individuals/businesses that donated to the tournament. Chapter 442 used the funds raised to support programs that assist veterans in dealing with Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, rehabilitation, disabilities and homelessness.

The organization known as the “Military Order of the Purple Heart,” was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all who have received the decoration. Composed exclusively of Purple Heart recipients, it is the only veterans service organization comprised strictly of “combat” veterans.

The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action.
