Medal of Honor
The Medal of Honor is the United States Armed Forces highest and most-prestigious military decoration that may be awarded to recognize American soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, guardians, and coast guardsmen, who have distinguished themselves by acts of valor.
The medal is normally awarded by the President of the United States in the name of the United States Congress. Because the medal is presented "in the name of Congress", it is also known as the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Sadly, there are those members of the U.S. Armed Forces ... whose great valor went unreported due to no surviving witnesses throughout the history of the military services defending the United States in time of peril and for other purposes.
Where would our beloved, noble country be without all these greatest heroes?
They performed their duty ... with personal concern being secondary to those around them ... doing what it took to safeguard their fellow troops while fighting to keep Old Glory safe and those who pledge allegiance to it ... free!
These 3,400 plus courageous, remarkable Americans represent the best of the best heroes in the service of the United States of America and their fellow citizens!
They truly deserve solemn remembrance and tribute!
