September 2016 VA Luncheon

September 2016 VA Luncheon

On September 21, 2016, Renewal Coalition in partnership with Veterans Adaptive Sports held our 5th VA luncheon since 2014. We hosted approximately 55 disabled veterans from the Community Living Center (CTC), Blind Rehab Center (BRC) and Outpatient Mental Health Programs (PRRC & MHICM) of the Palm Beach VA Medical Center. This is an event that we look forward to hosting several times each year, when the veterans assemble at the Renewal Coalition property for lunch, games and relaxation. We would like to extend a special thank you to Peter Moore from the Navy Seals Museum who gave special hats complete with the Seals Trident logo to each veteran. Everyone had a wonderful time by the river and we look forward to the next VA lunch retreat, which will be held on December 7,...

Purple Heart Day August 7th

Purple Heart Day August 7th

Today we observe Purple Heart Day, a day that encourages people to pay their respects to fallen soldiers, to listen to the stories of soldiers and veterans, and to thank them for their service to the nation.

After the end of the American War of Independence, no medals were awarded until 1932, when the medal was revived on the bicentennial anniversary of George Washington’s birth. According to a circular dated February 22, 1932, Purple Heart Medals were to be awarded to those wounded or killed while serving in the United States Armed Forces as a result of enemy action on or after April 5, 1917. The United States officially joined the First World War on April 6, 1917. 1.8 Million Awarded At current estimates about 1.8 million Purple Hearts have been awarded since then.
