March 25th: Medal of Honor Day

Today is a good day to read about heros. There are many more then it is possible to list and most go unnoticed by everyone but those they help. The Lost Heroes of the War on Terror:Four names that every American should know.

medalofhonorday Today is National Medal of Honor Day. The United States Congress has designated March 25th of each year as NATIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR DAY, a day dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients. (Public Law 101-564) March 25th was selected as the date because it is the date of the first presentation of the award 156 years ago. You can read more about it here.

 

If you are ever in the Charleston, SC area I highly recommend that you take a day and visit the Patriots Point. Plenty of things to see and do and of course, in honor of today the Medal of Honor Museum.
