An estimated 1.8 million Purple Hearts have been awarded since 1932. We receive on average, 3-5 medals unannounced each week. With every news story covering a return ceremony, our demand continues to grow. We have hundreds of medals in research waiting to be reunited with the Veteran or their families. With your support, we ensure these medals go home and these stories of heroism are shared for generations to come.
First Annual Gala
Purple Hearts Reunited 1st Annual Gala took place on February 27th, 2019 in New York City. It was a wonderful evening of patriotism honoring our Country’s heroes. Special thanks to former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie who joined us for the reuniting of PVT Howell Hughes’s Purple Heart to his grandson, Greg Hughes of Princeton, New Jersey.
We were honored to present Medal of Honor recipient, Col. Jack H. Jacobs, US Army (Retired) with our first “All Heart Award”. This wonderful evening was made possible by the generous support from our sponsors:
Matrix Technology Group, First Insurance, LunaCap Foundation, The Calero Family, America Legion Post 18, Michael and Judy Sullivan, Rubenstein Public Relations, Fred and Andrea Schwark and Flags of Valor.
