Do you remember that far off battlefield when your unit first came under fire? Do you remember when you were injured? Do you remember when you first arrived home thinking no one understands what I have seen, done, or my injuries.
Imagine a brotherhood where the members DO UNDERSTAND, because they have been there and suffered through the injuries. Imagine a place that you can help other veterans actually feel that someone understands.
Here at Chapter 1000 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart, we have a simple mission:
To foster an environment of brotherhood and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans, promote patriotism, and most importantly, provide service to all veterans and their families.
