Medal of Honor

March 25 is officially National Medal of Honor Day, set up to recognize the first date the medals were presented in 1863 to a group of six men for valiant acts performed during the Civil War.

Each year, Medal of Honor recipients lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in honor of all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. They also present Citizen Service Before Self Honors to three Americans who have demonstrated courage and selfless in their civilian lives similar to what the recipients did in combat.

Fly your flag proudly today and spend a few minutes online visiting the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to learn more about what these brave men have done for their country.

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.” – President John F. Kennedy
