MOPH Memorial Page

This page is meant to honor and remember Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) members that have passed away. Our members served our country proudly and risked their lives defending freedom. They traveled to foreign lands to ensure that wars weren't fought in our backyards. They faced bullets, bombs, mortars and all of the hells of war in order to defend liberty and the American way of life. While serving our country they sustained injuries that would affect them for the rest of their lives. They are true American hero’s and our country will be eternally grateful for their courage and sacrifice.

In addition to honoring our members who are Purple Heart recipients, we also remember our associate members. Associate members are lineal relatives of Purple Heart recipients. Under member type Purple Heart recipients are listed as Annual Members or Life Members. Associate members are listed as Associate Life Members or Associate Annual Members.
