Long Description:
The plaque says, "The Purple Heart Medal was originated by General George Washington on August 7, 1782 for distinguished valor and is now awarded only to members of the armed forces of the United States, who have been wounded in combat against an armed enemy.
Recipients of this unique award have been specifically honored by the U.S. Congress as a chartered fraternal organization known as the Military Order of the Purple Heart and have active members in Chapters throughout Wyoming, the United States and the world.

This plaque is located on the Purple Heart Trail's highest point on Interstate Highway #80 across the United States. It is appropriate as the Purple Heart award represents one of the highest sacrifices a member of the armed forces can make for their country, being wounded or killed in combat!"
