The Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc. (MOPH) is a congressionally chartered national veteran´s service organization. The funding for veterans services, welfare, rehabilitation, and educational programs comes from the Purple Heart Service Foundation, Inc. Funds for these programs are raised by the sale of useable household goods and apparel contributions, thus aiding all veterans and their families.
Chartered by Congress, the Military Order of the Purple Heart is the ONLY national organization composed entirely of combat wounded veterans who have been awarded the Purple Heart Medal. It was founded on the decoration originally established by General George Washington in 1782 for gallantry, fidelity, and service. Through funding provided by the Military Order of the Purple Heart Service Foundation (MOPH), the Purple Heart supports and sponsors programs which benefit not only combat wounded, but all veterans and their families at no cost. Clothing that can't be sold through traditional retail outlets are sold to textile recycling companies who reuse the discarded clothing in a multitude of ways.
