We, combat veterans of the wars of the United States and recipients of the Purple Heart medal, awarded by the United States Government and founded by General George Washington on August 7, 1782, at a critical time in our history, drawn together by bonds of respect and mutual suffering, have established the Military Order of the Purple Heart, chartered by the Congress of the United States, in order to perpetuate the principles of patriotic allegiance to the United States of America, fidelity to its Constitution and laws, the security of civil liberty, and the permanence of free institutions. Through this organization and our membership in it, we hope to be able to preserve and perpetuate those ideals of liberty, justice and the general welfare which are the very foundations of our way of life. We further pledge to foster and enhance those principles which, from the begining of our national history, have served as a beacon of hope and salvation to the peoples of all nations. (The Preamble to the Constitution of the Military Order of the Purple Heart)
