Branson is now a Purple Heart City! The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) bestowed the honor upon Branson – the first city in Missouri to be so named. In a ceremony on May 8, 2012, the city received a Military Order of the Purple Heart flag to be flown each year on Purple Heart Day, August 7.
Are we veteran-friendly? Yes, we are! Branson pays special tribute to our dedicated and brave servicemen and women every year during the Veteran's Week celebrations in November. Plus many shows and businesses offer special recognition and discounts every day to active military and veterans.
