The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, as of late 2021, has named over 1.8 million people since 1782. Unfortunately, the Purple Heart medal is given after a soldier has already made an incredible sacrifice. This solemn medal is often representative of a tragedy, but it also represents the heroism running core deep in the people who have made it their life’s work to protect others.

Naming baby after one of these Purple Heart heroes will encourage their bravery and compassion in life. August 7th is Purple Heart Day and it was created to commemorate the Americans that made sacrifices and represented their country.
