“While serving as a member is an honor in it of itself, I am grateful for the opportunity to continue my position as Legislative Officer and promote the ideas and goals of this organization,” said Sen. Harbison. “The Military Order of the Purple Heart represents some of the finest examples of bravery and service, and the men and women of this community share a collective commitment to service.
