Liberty University becomes Virginia’s first Purple Heart University

Liberty University was recognized as Virginia’s first Purple Heart University this week, receiving the honor from the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) in recognition of Liberty’s support of military veterans and their families.

The university now has “Purple Heart University” signs located at entrances to campus, while also reserving a parking space near close to the Veterans Center at the university for “Purple Heart recipients and all others who have been wounded during combat while serving in the U.S. armed forces.”
