All Americans invited to participate in virtual celebration of our nation’s heroes
ARLINGTON, TX – (March 25, 2020) – In recognition of National Medal of Honor Day and in celebration of the more than 3,500 servicemembers who have earned our nation’s highest military decoration, the National Medal of Honor Museum will hold the inaugural “Moment of Honor” today at 3:25 pm ET.
“Though circumstances seem to be changing daily, one thing remains the same: our commitment to inspire America,” said National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation (NMOHMF) President and CEO Joe Daniels. “The inaugural Moment of Honor will allow Americans to commemorate this important day in a responsible way. I hope all Americans will reflect upon the actions and bravery of our nation’s Medal of Honor recipients and the values they represent – courage, commitment, integrity, sacrifice, citizenship and patriotism.”
In 1990, Congress designated March 25th of each year as National Medal of Honor Day, a measure signed into law by President George H.W. Bush as a day to honor the heroism and sacrifice of America’s Medal of Honor recipients. Due to risks associated with the coronavirus, this year’s celebrations have been adapted to allow Americans to participate while maintaining social distance.
For National Medal of Honor Day this year, the Museum is asking all Americans to join together in paying tribute to Medal of Honor recipients by:
The NMOHMF is on a mission to inspire America by honoring the lives, actions and values of our nation’s Medal of Honor recipients through the creation of a museum in Arlington, Texas, and national monument in our nation’s capital.
