Our five Purple Heart recipients from last years cruise showing off their footballs signed by Marcus Mariota, the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner and now starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans.  Many other companies provided t-shirts, ball caps and other gifts to our wounded warriors.

Purple Heart Cruise, Inc. is now an IRS approved  501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization, which means all donations are tax-deductible.

To honor those who sacrificed for us.
