National Purple Heart Day is acknowledged each August 7 as a way to honor those service members who have been injured or killed in action.
As we approach this year’s observance, join Virginia War Memorial Archivist Heidi Sheldon to take a closer look at materials from the archives related to our nation’s oldest military award.
All of the Virginia War Memorial’s livestreams are free to view online. To be a part of our virtual audience, please register early on our website.
Previously broadcast and recorded programs are available at vawarmemorial.org/learn/resources.
Reach out to Morgan Guyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or issues with registration.
