Updated on November 26, 2012

The Military Order of the Purple Heart was established in 1958 by Congressional charter for men and women in the United States military who have been awarded with the Purple Heart Metal. Though the Military Order offers scholarships and other programs exclusive to those who belong to it, its National Service Program is dedicated helping all veterans. You can support the Military Order of the Purple Heart by donating money, vehicles, clothing, and many other things such as software, wheelchairs, and office supplies.

What Does the MPOH Service Program Do?

The Military Order of the Purple Heart's Service Program provides assistance to veterans, as well as orphans, widows, and other dependents.    They provide representation for veterans who have been denied benefits in Washington, DC, present veterans' claims before the Court of Veterans Appeal, offer service to veterans in both cities and remote areas, educate veterans about their benefits, and process their claims for compensation, medical care, education, job training, and more.

The Service Program also identifies and helps homeless veterans and will reach out to those who cannot make it to their office in Virginia (keep in mind that the Service Program has local offices across the United States).
