Sun 5 Aug
Purple Heart Appreciation Day

Join the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor on Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. to commemorate the 236th anniversary of General Washington's order creating the Badge of Military Merit, predecessor for the modern Purple Heart. The focus for this year's program will be on the caregivers, specifically the military nurses who care for the wounded. Although nurses are non-combatants, they have been awarded Purple Hearts as they have found themselves in harm's way. Their healing, caregiving activities are part of the Purple Heart journey so this is an appropriate day to honor them. The event will also see the first presentations of two reproduced uniforms that represent the service of Beatrice Mary MacDonald, the first woman and Army Nurse to earn the Purple Heart. She lost her right eye when wounded by a shell fragment on August 17, 1917. She received her Purple Heart in 1936.
Seating is limited and reservations are required. Please call: (845) 561-1765 for reservations.
