What is Happening With
HomeOfHeroes.com

No doubt many who have been regular visitors to HomeOfHeroes.com have become aware of the lack of either updates or additions since late 2009. In fact, over the last two years our focus has changed for a time, and the only work being done on the website is ADDING new recipients of the Medal of Honor when an award is presented or updating our pages when one of the Living MOH recipients passes away.

This web effort was begun in 1998, initially to preserve and provide the history of those who have received our nation's highest award, the Medal of Honor. In the decade that followed, we expanded to start including recipients of other awards in the belief that NO AMERICAN HERO should be "lost to history." In that process we learned that there exists no database or listing of the recipients of military awards other than the Medal of Honor, either officially or unofficially.

We endeavored to correct that sad lapse in official records by expanding HomeOfHeroes to include recipients of the Service Crosses in 2002, and again expanded in 2005 to try and compile the recipients of the Silver Star. It is an immense, at the time believed to be an impossible task, but one that has grown over the years, but that was hampered by the lack of resources. In 2009 "Military Times" came to the rescue, partnering with me to try and complete this database, which is no online at:

www.MilitaryTimes.com/hallofvalor

At the time that I partnered with Military Times, I made a three-year commitment to work towards trying to compile, at the least, the names and citations for ALL awards of the Silver Star and higher for the Military Times project...a compendium involving some 150,000 awards. I have spent the last two years building that database and will continue to devote ALL my efforts towards that throughout the remainder of this year. It is my hope that this effort will be extended, for I will certainly have much work to do on it beyond the 3-year limit of my agreement with Military Times.

At such time as I have completed my contract with Military Times (whether late this year or after any subsequent extension) I will return to continue work on HomeOfHeroes.com....this is my first love and my passion. But so long as men and women who have received some of our highest military awards remain "lost to history" my work will continue on that database.

With the exception of the above listed updates to this website, this year I have undertaken one additional addition...posting the pages to a work Pam and I began in 2002 and completed in 2006. We hope you enjoy that new effort.

Thank you for understanding the greater need for this awards database, and in the meantime, you will still find many pages of inspirational history in HomeOfHeroes.com to be discovered.

Sincerely,
Doug Sterner
