For Immediate Release

St. Paul, MN - July 31, 2011

Military Order of the Purple Heart National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota

The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and the Ladies Auxiliary of the MOPH are pleased to announce that their National Convention will be held this year at the Crown Plaza Riverfront Hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota during the week of 9-13 August 2011.

This annual event brings together the Commanders and delegates of the Order’s Regions, Departments, Chapters and Units from all States, Puerto Rico and the US Trust Territory of Guam to elect the National Leadership of the Order for the upcoming year.  Delegates will participate in training sessions, review the business of the past year, approve new governing amendments and organizational bylaw changes, and set an agenda for coming year. This year, Purple Heart Radio will be broadcasting and interviewing participants in the main lobby of the hotel for the benefit of the Delegates and the general public.

The organization now known as the "Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) of the U.S.A. Inc.," was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all who have received the decoration. Chartered by the Congress, The MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat. For this sacrifice, they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal. With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America's military history. Most importantly, they provide comfort and assistance to all Veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless, and those requiring employment assistance.  MOPH volunteers through the VAVS program, provide assistance to hospitalized veterans at VA sites and State Veterans Homes.
