National Medal of Honor Museum

They represent America’s bravest and best — the men and women who have served and sacrificed in defense of our nation. Their stories offer lessons for us all in how to live our lives. They are the recipients of America’s highest military award: the Medal of Honor

The Medal is awarded by the President, in the name of Congress, to U.S. military personnel for: “Conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty.”

Since the first Medal of Honor was awarded in March 1863, more than 25 million men and women have served during our nation’s conflicts. Fewer than 3,500 of them have received the Medal of Honor. They wear it for all who have served and sacrificed in defense of our nation. Their stories offer lessons for us all in how to live our lives.

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 they received. America needs a National Medal of Honor Museum. Please help us make it a reality.
