From the New

Medal of Honor Database

(On CD/ROM)*

 

Click on above list for a larger view


The special LIST options available in this database allows you to generate, view, and/or print lists a wide variety of lists of the Medal of Honor recipients.  These lists are attractively formatted with a header to identify the contents of the list, as well as an analysis of the data you have "filtered":

  • Total number of recipients listed

  • How many of the listed recipients were Killed In Action

  • How many of the listed recipients are still living

The filtering options are selected in the same manner as you filter Citations, Profile Pages, or Booklet Pages by entering your parameters in an input box.  The graphic at the top of this page was generated by querying the database for Medal of Honor recipients from World War I, and choosing the option to list them in alphabetical order.  A 3-page report is generated listing the 119 World War I recipients.  (The reports shown in these web pages are graphic scans that have been resampled to minimize download time, not the actual printed reports.  The printed reports generated by the database will be as clear as any word processing document.) 

 

When you choose the Lists button from the main switchboard, a new window opens to reveal the options for recipient generating recipient lists.  

  • By STATE to which MOH is Accredited
  • By STATE OF BIRTH
  • Recipients BORN in one state but whose Medal of Honor was accredited to another.
  • Recipients by War (Alphabetical)
  • Recipients by War (Chronological)
  • By Branch of Service (Alphabetical)
  • By Branch of Service (Grouped by War)
  • By War and Branch (Alphabetical)
  • By War, Branch & Unit (Alphabetical)
  • By KEY WORD 

 

Listing Recipients by STATE

The MENU gives you three different options for listing Medal of Honor recipients by STATE:  (You can click on the reports shown below for a slightly larger image.)

1

List those recipients whose Medals are accredited to a specified state.
(These are listed chronologically, with a special header separating them by WAR)

list_colorado.jpg (49098 bytes)

2

List all Medal of Honor recipients born in a specified state, regardless of whether their Medal is accredited to that state or to another state.

list_coloradoborn.jpg (32353 bytes)

3

List those recipients who were born in the specified state but whose Medal of Honor was accredited to another state.

list_coloradoborn2.jpg (30716 bytes)

The official records usually credit the state where a person ENTERED MILITARY SERVICE  with that individual's Medal of Honor.  For instance a young man could be born in a particular state, live there all his life, then move to another state and while there enlist in the service.  Even if he had been living in that state only a few days, weeks or months, his Medal of Honor would still be accredited to that state.  For this reason it is often helpful to be able to review a list of recipients based upon their state of birth, as well as the state to which their Medal is accredited.

 

 
Listing Recipients by BRANCH

The MENU gives you two different options for generating an alphabetical list of all Medal of Honor recipients from any specified branch of service.  (You can click on the reports shown below for a slightly larger image of this query on Marine Corps Recipients.)

1

All recipients from all wars, listed in ALPHABETICAL order.

list_mc_alpha.jpg (144890 bytes)

2

Recipients grouped chronologically by WAR, then listed alphabetically within that group.

list_mc_chron.jpg (129542 bytes)

 

Listing Recipients by WAR

Four different options are available to list the recipients from any specified way.  When you select one of the four options from the menu of lists, an input box will ask you to specify which war you want to generate a list of recipients for. 

(Below are the first pages of the 4-page list the KOREAN WAR query would create.  You can click on each graphic for a larger representation.)

1

COMPLETE ALPHABETICAL LIST

List all recipients from the war specified in the input box, then arrange them alphabetical in that list.

list_war_alpha.jpg (151928 bytes)

2

COMPLETE CHRONOLOGICAL LIST

List all recipients from the war specified in the input box, then arrange them CHRONOLOGICALLY from first to last in that list. 

list_war_chron.jpg (150243 bytes)

3

LISTED BY BRANCH OF SERVICE

Lists all recipients from the war specified in the input box, groups them by their branch of service,  then arranges them Alphabetically.  (This would take the war specified and list all Air Force recipients together alphabetically, then list all Army recipients together alphabetically, then do likewise for the Marine Corps, and then Navy recipients.)

list_war_branch.jpg (103907 bytes)

4

LISTED BY UNIT WITHIN BRANCH OF SERVICE

This list takes the previous option one step further, grouping the recipients within each branch according to their highest level unit.  (For instance, Marine Corps recipients would be grouped according to their division.  Under the Marine Corps section, members of the 1st Marine Division would be listed first, followed by other Marine Corps divisions.)

list_war_unit.jpg (121376 bytes)

 

Special KEY WORD Lists

As with the Citations, Profile and Booklet pages, you can generate custom lists based upon KEY WORDS.  If you run a query on the key words "West Point" or "USMA" it will return a 3-page list like the one shown at right.  (You can click on it for a larger image.)  This list shows the following in the header:

This list would reflect every recipient who ever ATTENDED the military academy.  If you had entered the key words "West Point Graduate" a slightly smaller list would have been generated, listing only those recipients who not only attended the Academy, but also graduated. 

Some other examples of lists you could view/print based upon keywords would include:


REPORTS are similar in many ways to LISTS.  We have designed some special fields however, to generate reports to answer some common questions.  Click on the Reports button on the screenshot of the database main switchboard below to learn more about the REPORTS feature of our database.
