History was made June 3, 2013 when Disabled American Veterans Harry L Herron Chapter No 49 was recognized as a Purple Heart Chapter by the Military Order of the Purple Heart. D.A.V. Chapter 49 becomes the first service chapter to receive this designation nationwide.
This designation is another indicator of the prevalent patriotism that runs deep in Pulaski County USA. Pulaski County as a whole has been recognized as a Purple Heart County, and two of its cities, St. Robert and Waynesville, MO have both been recognized as Purple Heart Cities.
