Reliable Superstore Hosts Event to Support Combat Wounded Veterans
On Saturday, September 10, 2011, Reliable Superstore will be honoring the local chapter of The Military Order of the Purple Heart to show support for our combat wounded troops.
“Reliable Superstore has long been a supporter of various veterans’ organizations,” said Tony Stubblefield, vice president/managing partner of the dealership that features franchises for Toyota, Lexus, BMW, Audi, and Scion vehicles. “At this event, we want to celebrate our combat wounded veterans and remind them that we’re here to give them the support they deserve for what they’ve given to our country.”
The event will be at the Reliable Superstore, 3521 E. Sunshine, from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. The MSU Color Guard will Present Colors at 10:00 a.m. Sharp at the corner of Sunshine and 65 Hwy in front of the Audi building. Combat Wounded Veterans will be on hand to meet with the public and share their military experiences. Representatives from the Veterans Administration, the 206th National Guard, and the Missouri Veterans Cemetery will be available to answer questions for veterans and the public. MSU ROTC will serve refreshments. We especially encourage the recent Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to attend and meet veterans that have served before them.
About The Military Order of the Purple Heart
The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.
The organization now known as the “Military Order of the Purple Heart,” was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all who have received the decoration. Composed exclusively of Purple Heart recipients, it is the only veterans service organization comprised strictly of “combat” veterans.
The mission of the Military Order of the Purple Heart is to foster an environment of goodwill and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans, promote patriotism, support necessary legislative initiatives, and most importantly, provide service to all veterans and their families.
