💜 National Purple Heart Day 💜

God bless all Purple Heart Veterans! Thank you for your time, bravery, and sacrifice for this country! Freedom does not die!!

A prayer and a moment of silence…



Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave!

Happy National Purple Heart Day ! ! !

…A lot of times we lose our disposition in regular daily matters, but this country and the flag it stands behind, is still the most free land in the world. It is a nice day to celebrate the freedom we enjoy everyday with a tributary to that served and were injured in the line of duty. I cannot thank those who, in the name of a free country, have given the sacrifice of being a Purple Heart Veteran! Bless!!

August 7th was National National Purple Heart Day! Wishing a great thanks to those who have put their life and health on the line to grant America a chance to fulfill freedom for all! Thank you! I really mean it, Thank you!!! The legacy lives on and on. . .

A Brief History:
Thank You: A special day to honor the American soldiers, sailors, marines, or any other department who served in the armed forces–to keep freedom alive for the country, and had the sacrifice of becoming Purple Heart. I would like to extend a special “thank you” and I thank God! Also a thank you to the families of the lost solders for their duty to keep the country alive with their merit of ultimate sacrifice. Bless to all!

Origination: The day is celebrated to honor as a day celebrating all Purple Heart Veterans. The day commemorates the creation of the oldest American military decoration for military merit, the Purple Heart. It honors the men and women who are of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. During the American Revolutionary War, the Badge for Military Merit decorated six known soldiers.

Traditions: Taking a hat off for the many Americans who over the years have served our Armed Forces during the period, in any way, shape or form. The Purple Heart medal is presented to service members who have been wounded or killed as a result of any enemy action while serving in the United States military forces. A Purple Heart is a solemn distinction and means a service member has greatly sacrificed themselves, or paid the ultimate price, while in the line of duty.

Different Variations: Returning veterans should have received a respectful welcome upon their arrival back to America. With over 58,000 deaths, the Veterans shall be honored and given the respect and dignity that they deserve. This observance of the day recognizes the military service of each and every one of these men and women who answered their call to serve their country.

Observed: On August 7th, General George Washington created the Badge of Merit in 1782. Washington, intending the honor to be presented to soldiers for “any singularly meritorious action,” designed a purple, heart-shaped piece of silk, bound with a thin edge of silver. Across the face of the badge, the word “Merit” was embroidered in silver. The badge symbolizes the courage and devotion of an American Patriot. It is not documented who designed the actual original award.

A Few Facts:
I am sharing a few facts, and more, some trivia, some not trivial. . .

  • The Purple Heart is the oldest military sward still presented to American service members
  • The Purple Heart was one of the first military medals given to all ranks
  • Service members can receive multiple Purple Hearts throughout their military career.

  • John F. Kennedy was the only president with a Purple Heart

  • More. . .

The Present:
Have you reached out to a Purple Heart, or their families? A thank you, a visit, a call, or a prayer is all that is necessary…

The Future:
We will NEVER, ever forget those who committed to service and gave sacrifice in the name of the freedom for which the flag and the Statue of Liberty stands for! Thank you!
