Military Order of the Purple Heart



Military Order of the Purple Heart
Lehigh Valley Chapter 190
Allentown, Pennsylvania


The twenty-third annual banquet
celebrating the birthday of
General George Washington
Creator of the Purple Heart







General Douglas MacArthur said: "'The Purple Heart' is unique; it is the only decoration which is completely intrinsic in that it does not depend upon approval or favor by anyone. Enemy action alone determines it. It is a true badge of courage, and every breast that wears it can beat with pride."

On Saturday March 3, 2007 Chapter 190 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart held its twenty third banquet honoring General George Washington's 275th birthday. More information and photographs are available on the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 190's web site. Click the link below:
