Graco Awards does it all for God and country. The company makes medals, including the Medal of Honor and Purple Heart, authorized by the US armed forces. In 1999 Graco signed a contract to make Purple Hearts -- the first large-scale order of the medal (awarded to any member of the armed forces who is killed or wounded in action) since WWII. Graco also makes medal holders, service ribbons, presentation boxes, and medals dating back to the Civil War. It can also design and make custom pins and medals for athletic and scholastic awards.
