This Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter began organizing in July 2013. After enough members were recruited and transferred, the Chapter was chartered and installed on October 1, 2013.

The original Purple Heart award, known as the The Badge of Military Merit, was instituted by George Washington in 1782 to reward troops for "unusual gallantry" and "extraordinary fidelity and essential service."
