The Future Home for America’s Greatest Heroes

The Medal of Honor is our nation’s highest and most prestigious military decoration. Presented to roughly 3,500 recipients since its founding during the Civil War, the medal symbolizes the timeless American ideals of courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity, and commitment.

The stories of Medal of Honor recipients, demonstrating bravery in combat at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty, serve as a beacon to all Americans. These legacies, such as those below, deserve a permanent home on the national landscape. The National Medal of Honor Museum will be their home.
