Welcome to the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Chapter 356 website. We are a proud organization of Combat Wounded veterans serving the veterans in Knox County and surrounding areas.  We also have Associate Members (blood-line relative of a Purple Heart recipient) and volunteers. Our chapter’s goal is to help our fellow veterans in any way that we can.

At this time, we do not receive funding from any outside organizations, so we must raise funds for our goals on our own. All of the money received via donations goes back to our veterans.

If you are a Purple Heart recipient or know of one in our area who would like to join our chapter, please contact Commander Charlie Cardwell at 865-310-7045 or email – cdcardwell49@gmail.com
