The Badge of Military Merit was first announced in General George Washington’s general orders to the Continental Army issued on August 7, 1782 at the Headquarters in Newburgh, NY. Designed by Washington in the form of a purple heart, it was intended as a military order for soldiers who exhibited, “not only instances of unusual gallantry in battle, but also extraordinary fidelity and essential service in any way.” The Purple Heart that we know today is the official successor decoration of the Badge of Military Merit.
By setting the price of the Purple Heart Pendant at $82.17, it’s our attempt in keeping with the traditions and principles first set by George Washington and honoring the men and woman of our country who have been awarded a Purple Heart: past, present, and future.
