The Military Order of the Purple Heart

For Immediate Release

Washington DC - March 4, 2015

House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller Honored by the Military Order of the Purple Heart with the 2014 Exemplary Leadership Award n

Since his election to the House of Representatives in 2001, Representative Jeff Miller has consistently been an advocate for veterans, military members and their families and serves as an inspiration to all Members of Congress.

Already a champion for veterans, since assuming the chair of the Committee on Veterans Affairs, Mr. Miller has sponsored or co-sponsored legislation that addressed veterans' education, improving the VA claims process, major VA construction, and issues affecting survivors. Mr. Miller personally led the effort to pass the Veterans' Access, Choice and Accountability Act, which provides veterans with additional options for health care and increased accountability from VA. As Chairman, Mr. Miller provided outstanding oversight of the VA health care scandal. Chairman Miller's most recent accomplishment was passage of the Clay Hunt SAV legislation which he expedited through Congress. 

Chairman Miller's dedicated service to veterans reflects great credit upon himself, the United States Congress and the United States of America.

The organization now known as the "Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc.," (MOPH) was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all combat wounded veterans and active duty men and women 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, through veteran service, 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. Programs of the MOPH include VA Volunteer Service, First Responder Recognition, JROTC Leadership Award, Scholarships, Americanism, Purple Heart Trail and Cities, Welfare, and numerous community service programs, all with the objective of service to Veterans and their families.
