Bruce's Note: This site undergoing major renovation for next few days...please bear with me (as of 9MAY2013).
Hello! Whether you are a Purple Heart Medal recipient, spouse or family member, or merely just interested, this Oklahoma site's for you, too!
Our National Organization's web site is- http://www.purpleheart.org
My name is Bruce Dwyer. I am a member of the (non-profit/tax-deductible) Military Order of the Purple Heart (aka "MOPH").
I now pay for this site out of my own pocket-so some of the articles are OPINIONS that I happen to agree with-not necessarily the official opinion of the MOPH.
If you disagree with anything, fine; start and pay for your OWN website!
We support Combat Wounded Veterans, promote Patriotism, observe Patriotic events and enjoy camaraderie.
Please sign our Guestbook under the "Contact Us" tab above.
The primary purpose here is to tell you what the Military Order of the Purple Heart is about/up to, especially in the Department (state) of Oklahoma.
Secondly, we support ALL VETERANS /Patriotic Activities and will try to be a lightning rod for veterans communications and support. We stand together or are diminished.
While we are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3)(19) organization and our OK Dept. FEIN # is 20-3098859.
BUT, the IRS tax code that allows businesses and individuals to give us a tax-deductable donation is actually IRC 170 (c) (3).
PLEASE DONATE TO SUPPORT OKLAHOMA"S COMBAT WOUNDED VETS!
Make out Donations to: "MOPH DEPT. OKLAHOMA"
