Every American should visit this little museum. You will learn about the history of the purple heart and see a very nice short film. There is quite a bit of military memorabilia as well.

This is a great place to gain some appreciation for our veterans" service over the years. The Purple Heart Museum is still working to list as many Purple Heart recipients as they can. It's up to the public to help!
