Moment of Honor

The Medal of Honor is the highest award a member of the armed services can receive for valor in combat, given to those who went above and beyond the call of duty on the battlefield. In 1990, Congress designated March 25th of each year as National Medal of Honor Day and it was signed into law by President George HW Bush as a day to honor the heroism and sacrifice of Medal of Honor recipients for the United States.

This year Medal of Honor Day, like so many other special events and activities, will be commemorated differently than ever before. On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 3:25 pm ET, we ask all Americans to join us in the inaugural ‘Moment of Honor,’ a moment of quiet reflection upon the actions and bravery of our nation’s Medal of Honor recipients.

Join us here at 3:25 pm ET on 3/25/20.
