Navy Medal of Honor


The Navy Medal of Honor is our country's oldest continuously awarded decoration, even though its appearance and award criteria has changed since it was created for Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard enlisted men by Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles on December 16, 1861. Legislation in 1915 made officers eligible for the award. Although originally awarded for both combat and non-combat heroism, the Medal of Honor today is presented for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty.
