MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As we face this serious health crisis in our Country, we are reminded that, as in the past, we can overcome even the most serious situations if we stick together, seize the opportunity to help, be supportive of your fellow Americans and stand by those who we have entrusted as our leaders.
The Medal of Honor is the military's highest award for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity, above and beyond the call of duty. Of the nearly 50 million Americans who have served in the Armed Forces since President Abraham Lincoln signed it into law in 1861, the Medal of Honor has been bestowed upon fewer than .007% of those in combat. The Congressional Medal of Honor Society, a 501(c)3 organization which consists exclusively of the living Recipients of the Medal of Honor, is dedicated to educating and inspiring Americans about the six values embodied in the Medal of Honor: courage, sacrifice, commitment, integrity, citizenship, and patriotism.
