" Chapter 1000 in Fitzgerald, Georgia is to be commended for being the first Department of Georgia chapter to establish it's own website. Further, they are the first Department of Georgia chapter to have stepped into Twitter world of social media and have joined Chapter 576 in Alphretta, Georgia as the owners of Facebook pages. Now, I challenge the other chapters to reach the standard Chapter 1000 has set."

After John Flener joined the Military Order of the Purple Heart in 2012 he began trying to become active with a local chapter. After several months of trying to make contact with the Tifton Chapter, the chapter announced it was defunct. Patriot Flener began working to organize Chapter 1000 in July 2013. Patriot Flener hosted one organizational meeting in August of 2013 and it became apparent that several Purple Heart Recipients were looking forward to a chapter in South Georgia. After enough members were recruited and transferred, the Chapter was chartered and installed on October 1, 2013.


The Charter Members of Chapter 1000 are:

​Oliver L. Bryan, Edwin Gerald Chason, William L. Danforth*, John W. Danforth Jr., John T. Flener Jr., Terry G. Fralick, James W. Graham, Earl L. Hendrix, John D. Lindsey*, Leonard Sapp*, Warren D. Scoby, James R. Statham Jr. Rondal Tomberlin.

* Deceased


MOPH Chapter 1000 currently meets in Nashville, Georgia, at Masonic Lodge #234 every second Thursday of the month at 6:00PM.  Below are graphs that show the diversity of our chapter.
