The end of the school year brings the final bell, for graduating students whom have applied themselves and chosen to be leaders. The Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter officers have been fortunate to meet some of our IL JROTC Cadets at their school awards ceremonies. The Military Order of the Purple Heart’s Youth Programs are focused on fostering patriotism and good citizenship among America’s youth. We recognize outstanding leadership in cadets and midshipmen through the Senior and Junior ROTC programs in the United States and Department of Defense Dependent Schools worldwide. This is a wonderful positive program that recognizes those outstanding achievements.
