Home of America's Heroes:
Building the National Medal of Honor Museum
They are America’s bravest and best. Our most distinguished heroes. Their stories of selfless service and sacrifice offer lessons for us all in how to live our lives. They are the recipients of our nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor.
In its 151-year history, fewer than 3,500 have received the Medal. Just 78 of them are alive today. We thank them for their service, but there is no place that offers us the opportunity to reflect not only on what they did, but also on the values and ideals exemplified by the Medal.
America’s heroes need a home. The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation has been organized to create that home – and to keep their stories alive for future generations.
We are pleased that the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, the brotherhood of living Medal of Honor recipients, has designated this as the National Medal of Honor Museum.
