"The Mission of the Military Order of the Purple heart

promote Patriotism, Support necessary legislative initiatives, and most importantly,

provide service to all veterans and their families."

North Las Vegas to Become a Purple Heart City

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the North Las Vegas City Council will officially proclaim North Las Vegas as a “Purple Heart City” during its evening Council meeting at City Hall, 2250 L. V. Blvd, No., North Las Vegas, NV.  The Council convenes at 6:00 PM.  The public is invited to attend this patriotic ceremony.  


In taking this action, the City of North Las Vegas pays special homage to America’s sons and daughters, and particularly those from North Las Vegas, who have been killed or wounded in combat against the enemies of the United States or as a result of acts of international terrorism.  


Representing all Purple Heart recipients in the area will be Chapter 711 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Commander Len Yelinek will present Mayor John Lee and the Council with a special plaque and other mementoes to commemorate the day.  The city will also be presented a Purple Heart flag to be flown on military holidays; especially on August 7th, National Purple Heart Day.  


The "Military Order of the Purple Heart of the U.S.A. Inc.," (MOPH) was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all combat wounded veterans and active duty men and women who have received the decoration. Chartered by the Congress, The MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat. For this sacrifice, they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal. With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America's military history. Most importantly, through veteran service, they provide comfort and assistance to all Veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless, and those requiring employment assistance.  Programs of the MOPH include VA Volunteer Service, JROTC Leadership Awards, Scholarships, Americanism, Purple Heart Trail and Cities, Welfare, and numerous community service programs, all with the objective of service to Veterans and their families.   Chapter 711 meets the first Saturday of each month at the   


 I-Hop Restaurant, 9651 Trailwood Dr., Las Vegas.
