historic site Information

The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor's 7500 square foot facility offers visitors an incredible journey through military history, beginning with a visual timeline of America’s major conflicts of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Main Gallery themes are anchored by a powerful sculpture of a wounded soldier being carried to safety by two comrades.

Artifact cases highlight the changing nature of warfare, combatants and medical care. The theme “Every Purple Heart has a story to tell” is represented by personal story cases of recipients as well as by the stories told in other themed displays. The theme from Battlefield to Care is told in the words of recipients, covering battlefield injuries to coming home.

Roll of Honor: Visitors may sit at one of the six computer stations and access The Purple Heart Roll of Honor. Visitors may search for recipients, or choose to view the stories of our featured recipients, which is a rotating selection outstanding stories from this database. The Roll of Honor is an ongoing work in progress. As we build the nation's first comprehensive database of Purple Heart recipients, we greatly appreciate your assistance in collecting accurate information on all whose names and stories should be remembered here. If you are a Purple Heart recipient or know someone who is, you can make sure the story will be preserved by contacting the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor to enroll in the Roll of Honor.
