Today is "National Medal of Honor Day"

Recommended Posts

Thank you to our members who have served, and condolances to those who may have lost someone during their service.



March 25th is National Medal of Honor Day — the anniversary observance of the awarding of the first Medals of Honor. It’s an opportunity to recognize all of the recipients of our nation’s highest military award for valor and recall their extraordinary service and sacrifice on behalf of their brothers in arms and in defense of American Liberty.



Since those first medals were awarded, American presidents and military commanders have, in the name of the United States Congress, presented Medals of Honor to more than 3,500 recipients — and amazingly, there have been 19 double recipients. In a nation of some 330 million people today, there are only 63 living recipients.
