The original purple heart was created by George Washington on this day in 1782. Awarded by the U.S. Armed Forces, it is given to wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States or as a result of an act of any such enemy or opposing armed forces.

Let's take a moment to say a special thanks to our purple heart recipients. <3
