The mission of the Marine Corps League is to promote the interest and preserve traditions of the United States Marine Corps; strengthen the fraternity of Marines and their families; serve Marines and FMF Navy Personnel who wear the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor; and foster the ideals of Americanism and patriotic volunteerism.
The mission of the Military Order of the Purple Heart is to foster an environment of goodwill and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans. Our members are Combat Wounded Veterans who are dedicated to our country and our veteran community. We endeavor to do better for each other and by each other always. CHAPTER 1965 RICHMOND
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities. Post 354 is located on a beautiful 10 acre site on the James River where it hosts community and patriotic events.
The operation, upkeep, and maintenance of the Purple Heart Truck is ongoing and requires a lot of time, volunteers, and FINANCIAL SUPPORT! We thank everyone that has reached out and provided the necessary funding to help keep our rolling war memorial on the road and our mission to bring peace to those who have suffered the burden of war.
Our financial donors fund 100% of the costs in operating the truck, while our In-kind contributors provide goods and services that would otherwise deplete our funding. 100% of every dollar serves the operation of the truck, no one from OPHT is compensated for their service.
Help us raise awareness of our mission by sharing our website, social media pages, and events with your friends, family, and colleagues.
