About Purple Hearts Reunited
Earned Through Valor, Lost By Circumstance
If you are a Veteran or a family member of a veteran who lost their Purple Heart due to theft, fire, or misplacement, we suggest visiting the following site to request replacement documentation and medals: Veterans Service Records.
If you have documentation of your Purple Heart, please let us know and we can assist with getting a replacement medal. Also, with these records, we will assist you with enrolling the Veteran into The Purple Heart Hall of Honor.
If you find a medal, please:
- Contact us to report the found medal. When reporting the found medal, include as much information about it as possible. Most often, Purple Hearts are engraved with the Veterans name. This normally signifies them as “Presentation Purple Hearts”, which means the Veteran was killed in combat and the government had the medal engraved and sent it to the family. However, some veterans who survived their wounds, decided to get their medals engraved in remembrance of their event, also known as “Personal Engraving”. Some Purple Hearts are not marked what soever. We still encourage people to send us these medals as some of the engraved medals we receive are badly damaged and we use original time period medals to replace missing pieces for the presentation to a family.
- Check our Lost Hearts Database to see if the heart you’ve found is listed.
- Send medals to Purple Hearts Reunited by registered mail to be cataloged and researched. Those that submit a medal are kept up to date with the return process and most often participate in the return ceremony. Medals can be sent to the following address: Purple Hearts Reunited, 38 North Main Street, Suite 112, St. Albans VT 05478
