This is a great web-site. I am a Viet Nam vet who would like to pay
tribute to my father-in-law, Blair B. Costlow, who was a Purple Heart veteran
who fought in five major battles of WW2, including the D-Day invasion and the
battle of the Bulge. He was with 4th Infantry Division. It was
only until late in his life that he even acknowledged just what he did for all
Americans. He fought his way from Utah Beach through France and parts of
Germany! He left in January of 1999, but he will forever be in my heart as a
hero and a great father-in-law.

I think that your "GUEST BOOK" is a great service to all of us
vterans who hardly got recognizrd for our service. Oh sure, our families
and girl friends appreciated what we did, but that was about it. When I
served with the First Infantry Division (1st Admin. Co.) in 1967, hundreds of
GI's were dying every week and all they got (maybe) was a notice in their
local newspaper. Nowadays, one soldier or pilot or whatever gets killed
overseas and it's a national headline. Believe me, I am NOT, in any way,
belittling those who are fighting and dying for us today. They are doing
an incredible job. I guess that it would have been impossible to list
all of those who were killed or were MIA during the Viet Nam
"conflict." How times have changed.
I was fortunate to see the mobile version of the Viet Nam vet's memorial a few
years back and it was a very moving experience. It was also Veteran's
Day that day, so that made all the more special. 58,000+ names of those
who sacrificed their all for nothing is somrthing that I will never forget.
Also, let's remember all of the GI's who are not able to be home this holiday

I want to thank you for taking on the arduous task of acknowledging the
heroes of our several branches of the service and various wars they fought in.
My uncle, Major Charles L. Thomas, was one of seven (7) black Medal Of Honor
recipients honored at a ceremony in Washington January 13, 1997 by President
Clinton. Our family had the distinct pleasure of accepting that highly
coveted and prestigious award that now sits in a military museum honoring its
own here in Michigan. We could never be so proud as we were that day to
be in my uncle's blood line. And more proud to be called an American
because we are never to proud to admit our mistakes and right our wrongs.
Keep up the good work and may God bless you.

Message from an European to Americans servicemen past and present :
You may have the feelings that europeans do not hold americans in high regard.
That now when you are busy fighting terrorism we leave you alone in the midst
But not everyone here thinks or feels like that. Lots of people here
stand together with you. America has stood for what was right in the past and
stands for what is right now.
Where freedom is challenged by evil, american brave men and women fight and
die to secure that freedom for each of us.
I want to thank all american servicemen who fought for us in the Second World
"lest we forget."
By this I try to express my thanks for what you have done and given for
my freedom. I have the greatest respect and appreciation for you. You
liberated us and gave us our countries back. There are lots of people here in
Europe who will never forget your sacrifices. Also thank you for trasmiting
the same ideals of liberty freedom and peace to your sons and daughters who
keep defending the free world, our world.
We have not forget, You have not been forgotten. We are passing our gratitude
for what you did down to our children and grandchildren. We will do this by
teaching our children the price that was paid for their freedom.We will try to
pass this feeling of gratitude to generations to come, for the people you
liberated have not broken faith with you. We remember what you did and the
price you paid.
I will help my children understand the enormity of the gift that they each
have been given. I will teach my children to see the price that was paid for
their freedom. That thousands of americans died to assure that
they, european children, are free. That those who died sacrificed everything
they held dear so that we could be free. The knowledge of how precious this
gift is will help them understand that these men did not die in vain. That
even if we don't remember or know the names of those who died for
us we should hold sacred the cause for which they died.
I will tell my children that lots of american servicemen gave their lives with
no expectation of anything in return. This gift of freedom was fought for and
was given to me with no strings attached. I will tell my children that they
gave their lives and their legacy lives inside me and my only responsibility
now is that I protect it well so I can pass it down to my children and all
future generations. That only if we live under the delusion that we are
somehow entitled to freedom have we broken faith with those who died. I will
tell them that we are living their legacy and we must not be oblivious to
American Servicemen : again....Thank you, I have the greatest respect
and appreciation for you.

Also, my husband met Col. Carl Leonard Sitter--and what a fine, outstanding
Christian and war hero he was, too! He died in 2000.
THANKS for this website. God called my husband home in 1998. He

My Brother Victor Sippin, served on PT. Boat 555 of Ron.29 in WW 2. After a
meeting with the Free French (F.F.I.) in Port DuBouc, Southern France, the
boat struck a mine leaving the harbor on Aug.24, 1944. He and 4 other men were
lost. I am proud of my brother, who gave up his life for our great country. I
consider it a privilege to put his name in this wonderful guest book.

I worked at the Medal of Honor Convention in 2000 in Pueblo. At the time I
was an enlisted CAP cadet now I am an officer and I never forget the fun and enjoyment
I had at the convention. It was a life changing experience to meet and
listen to all of the MoH recipients. As much as I enjoyed this occasion
I hope that in the future these no longer occur. I hope that our differences
can be settled in the halls of congress rather than on the battlefields.
I hope that no more men and women have to see what these men have been though.

As one of the Kilbourne/Kilburn family historians I feel humbled every time
I visit a site on the Medal Of Honor. Especially since I found that Gideon
Welles (Secretary of the Navy for Pres. Lincoln) was himself a Kilburn
descendant. Then to find that General Charles E. Kilbourne (jr.) and Webb Cook
Hayes came from the same mold.
I have also had the privilege of knowing a fine Christian gentleman by the
name of Woody Williams. I thank GOD every day for giving us these heroes.

I am a combat airwar veteran of WWII. All I have to say is
that thousands of WWII veterans are having their stories stolen or lost before
they die. It is time for the Home of Heroes and other sourced to help
preserve these stories as told by the men who lived them before some upstart
author comes along and uses them to write a book to make money.
The veterans ought to be
heard and time is running out.
Therefore I propose that the Home of Heroes start a project to get sons and
daughters of WWII veterans to submit the stories before it is too late.
One way is by a recording they can make of their parents or grandparent.
What a great tribute that would be to the veterans to have their words

Gruesse aus Wisconsin, USA. im Jahre 1944-45 war ich gerade 6 jahre jung.
in dieser zeit hatte ich ein Erlebniss, welches ich nie vergessen werde. Wir,
das heisst meine Mutter, Bruder, Schwester und ich wurden von der Deutschen
Wehrmacht evakuiert. wir waren im raum Hannover auf einem Bauernhof. (Farm)
Als die alliierten Verbaende tiefer in Deutschland ein marschierten, hatten
sich Deutsche Einheiten zurueck gezogen. es war spaet abends, wenn ploetzlich
zwei Deutsche Panzer in die Schauene (Barn) einfuhren. Am naechsten morgen
hoerten wir ploetzlich die Fliegeralarm Sirenen. Mamma, mein Bruder und
Schwester versuchten einen nahen Tunnel zu erreichen. da ich in der Schauene
war, hat ein Deutscher Panzer Soldat seinen Stahlhelm auf meinem Kopf gesetzt.
dann bin ich los um den Wassertunnel zu erreichen. (circa 50 Meter). Halbwegs
dorthin kam der erste "Stuka" (sturz kampf Flugzeug) vom Himmel
runter und schiesst mit seine Bordkanonen richtung Bauernhof. Ich war wie
versteinert, mitten im Hof, den Helm mit beide Haende umfasst. ploetzlich
hoerte das schiessen auf und der Flieger zog steil hoch. der Pilot wollte kein
kleines Kind toeten, er konnte sehen das ich ein kleiner Junge war. Jahre
spaeter hatte ich erfahren das es eine "P51-Mustang war. Dieser Pilot war
ein richtiger """Hero""". Unbekannter weise und
in Gedanken moechte ich diesen Piloten umarmen und danken fuer seine Reaction,
er hatte wohl auch kinder. Lebe seit 26 Jahre in den USA, bin Officer in der
CAP Wisconsin Wing und lerne den CAP - Cadetten unteranderm auch :Freundlichkeit,
Respekt und "Reaktion". Die schnelle "Reaktion" meines
Hero Piloten hat mir mein Leben gerettet.

A very valuable site where the truth about US history can be
found. Brits are fed a steady diet of revisionism and no civics at all; we are
'subjects' not people - and as such, don't need niceties like a Constitution
or Bill of Rights. If only people here would wake up and follow the example
set for us by both the US and France . . . instead of wasting so much on
maintaining the wax museum called a monarchy we might not have a percentage of
people who live in appalling poverty (but without the sun - heat OR eat!) and
are kept that way by the determination of those who legislate to ensure the
poor stay poor - completely without access to justice, proper medical care or
housing. Here's to the hope that study of your site may help bring about
changes that would allow those with the will to pull themselves up to do so
instead of being prevented, by the system itself, from breaking out of the
poverty trap. Your site demonstrates that true liberty is not achieved at the
cost of patriotism or any other virtue, but that patriotism flourishes better
under liberty and equality of opportunity.

.......I just left the citation site for MOH recipent Cpt.Riley L. Pitts(Oklahoma).I served as his RTO with Charlie Co. 2/27th Wolfhounds of the 25th Infantry Division, Cu Chi VIETNAM.I still grieve this warriors'death October 31,1967.I will carry his memory deep within my soul ,forever.Any fallen Wolfhound was a great loss to us.We were as strong as a family could be.I'm so proud to be an American and to have fought with this great fighting unit.This War will be debated for centuries to come, as to the lessons learned but,it can never replace the lives lost,the MIA's never accounted for, the families of loved ones shattered,and the Scar that was etched out across America.The price that was paid,is on the "WALL". "American's" , this Veterans Day, November 11 2002 marks the 20th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington,DC. Please show your respect,and support, to these fallen American Men and Women, who paid the ultimate sacrifice for this great country, by being there.

We thought we had lost one of our future fishing clients address and I went to one site and typed in Cafferata and it brought up Hector Cafferata. Well that has to be him. Sure enough and it took me to his military background of being one of the
recipients of "The Congressional Medal Of Honor". So he called and I asked if that was him. He was taken by surprise and asked how did I know? I told him and so when he arrived I must say it was an honor to meet him.

I didn't find any information on the soldiers of the 9th & 10th Cavalry, who were Medal of Honor recipients. It is probably an oversight on my part. As I stated before, your website has a wealth of information, so I may not have been looking in the right area. Please let me know where these soldiers, who have contributed greatly to America's history and development, are acknowledged on your website.

Really enjoyed this site. Just this morning we were at the VA Cemetery here in Marion and there are three of the Medal of Honor men buried here. Their stones are different than the rest of the men buried here. After our visit to the cemetery I looked up to see what they did to get the medal. One was in the Indian War, and two were the veterans of the Civil War, one Army and one Navy. I appreciate all that these men have done for us and our country, but also all those who had served their time in the various wars we have been in.

I heard his stories many times and wished he wouldn't repeat them so often. He passed on in 1998 and now I only wish I could hear them again. He was awarded four bronze stars for his service.(He said he could have had a silver star but he didn't want to fill out the paper work,he only wanted to come home!)

Thank You, the articles were great and I feel the shame of our Nation for not treating these gentlemen as the Hero and humans that they are. I was aboard the USS James C. Owens DD-776 during the Korean war and we took enemy fire
at Sonjin Harbour killing Three and wounding nine. There were men aboard that wre awarded citations for their heroism and probubly many more who deserved recognition.
I also served with MACV in '65 & '66 in the Mekong Delta
I can't remember all of the casualties dead and wounded we
took during that time. The only man that I remember is Navy
LT. Ray Ellis. Again thank you for a wonderful job.

to any one who would like to reply
i was a SSG in the army and broke my back in korea and had to retire after 20 years 6 days on active duty, i was told by my friends who retired around the same time, that there was a whole ceremony that you got to go though, and that you got presented a flag
i answered the call a long time ago and was proud to serve and never asked for anything in return and never received anything when i retired in November of 2000
i'm not asking now but, it sure would have been nice to be recognized for the time i did sreve
i fought in desert storm with the 24th infantry 3/15 as a bradley commander company A (gators) and was dam proud to be with them
its just that sometimes i wish i would have got my day in the sun too, just like all my brothers in uniform who retired, it just makes me feel like i haven't completed my final mission
thanks to who ever took the time to read this it makes me feel like i haven't lost my big green family

A very valuable site where the truth about US history can be found. Brits are fed a steady diet of revisionism and no civics at all; we are 'subjects' not people - and as such, don't need niceties like a Constitution or Bill of Rights. If only people here would wake up and follow the example set for us by both the US and France . . . instead of wasting so much on maintaining the wax museum called a monarchy we might not have a percentage of people who live in appalling poverty (but without the sun - heat OR eat!) and are kept that way by the determination of those who legislate to ensure the poor stay poor - completely without access to justice, proper medical care or housing. Here's to the hope that study of your site may help bring about changes that would allow those with the will to pull themselves up to do so instead of being prevented, by the system itself, from breaking out of the poverty trap.
Your site demonstrates that true liberty is not achieved at the cost of patriotism or any other virtue, but that patriotism flourishes better under liberty and equality of opportunity.

I am not Jaime Pacheco's son, but his nephew. What a beautiful tribute to his memory and our country. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sterner and his wife at the Pacheco/Vejar family reunion in Hobbs New Mexico at the end of June 2002. I was much impressed with Mr. Sterner's gentle nature and obvious affection for my Uncle "Jimmy's" family. I last saw Uncle Jimmy in Lemoore,N.A.S.,Calif., where my father, Roberto Pacheco, U.S.N. Ret., was stationed. Uncle Jimmy was visiting us before he left for Nam. My memories of him were of a gentle caring person and I missed him for a long time. Seeing Mr. Sterner and visiting with him brought back bittersweet memories but allowed me to realize that a little bit of Uncle Jimmy lives on in all of us privileged enough to have known him no matter how short a time. I saw him in Mr. Sterner and see him in Michael(my cousin:Jaime's son). I like to think that he is in me. Thank-you, Mr. Sterner, for this tribute to our families, our country, and to God. GOD IS GOOD! God bless and keep you all...

Excellent, excellent site!! Very well done. I chanced on this site while doing a search on the Pledge of Allegiance, and so I came in the back door, so to speak. I decided to go to your homepage and take some time to tour thru the rest of your site, where I found many interesting things. I have created a new 'Favorites" folder called "Patriotism" and your site is the first to be added.
I will definitely be back.

Thank you for putting up and keeping this web site going. I received this an email from Colonel Wesley L. Fox, USMC, Retired, a member of my Veterans Organization the "First Battalion Ninth Marines Network, Inc.", of which I'm the National Membership Committee Chairman, about the story of Mr. John finn. Colonel Fox is the only surviving Medal of Honor Recipient from the 1st Battalion 9th Marines in Vietnam, where as a First Lieutenant he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on February 22, 1969, during Operation Dewey Canyon. I sent an email to the Montel Williams show, 48 Hours and 60 Minutes shows saying the following: I thought that you would like to due a show and educate the public on this Nations eight Medals awarded for Heroism in Combat. For the Department of the Navy they are as follows:
1. Medal of Honor,
2. Navy Cross,
3. Silver Star,
4. Distinguished Flying Cross,
5. Bronze Star Medal,
6. Air Medal,
7. Navy Commendation Medal,
8. Navy Achievement Medal.
This story got me MAD! The one person even the President of the United States (The Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces) must salute first is a Medal of Honor (MOH) recipient. Because of the way Mr. Finn was treated it infuriates me even more that the level of ignorance has grown and our national patriotism has deteriated to this level, this is partially due to the fact that since our schools curriculum quit teaching "American and World History" and started substituting a program called "Social Studies" in their place. I was watching the evening news and heard a report that 57% of our High School students couldn't pass the basic History exam! Please share this story and help educate the public.

I am a member of the Delaware Medal of Honor Historical Association and would to inform everyone we are attempting to inform as many individuals in the State of Delaware about the 14 Medal of Honor recipients from Delaware. We have asked the Governor to name a road at the Delaware Veterans Cemetery after SGT James P. Connor, a Recipient from WW II. The Governor thought this was a good idea and said she would make it so. The Delaware Veterans Affairs Commission has decided they do not want to name the road after any individual in fear they will have every organization you can think of want the same thing. We have spoken to many veterans and they have said they would be proud that the road would be named after the only Medal of Honor Recipient
buried there. I am a cousin to SGT William L. Nelson also a Medal of Honor Recipient from Delaware during WW II and asking as many individual to please send my an e-mail in support of our
effort. I hope as many of you as possible will contact me. Our organization is doing our best to keep the story of each one of these Heroic Men alive.

I am so very proud of him..

The Fourth Verse
of the Star Spangled Banner
Oh thus be it ever when all men shall stand
Between our loved homes and war's desolation
Blessed with beauty and peace may our heavenly lands
See the light up above and become more than
But if battle we must for the cause that is just
May we choose as standards those that all men can
Then the Star Spangled Banner in honor shall wave
Among the lands of the free and the home of the

I was deeply touched by this website. My father served and was wounded in Korea. When I visited the Korean War Memorial in Washington DC, I explained to my 4 children what a hero their grandpa is. He's always been "Daddy" to my six siblings and myself, but when I saw the monument or look at his medals, I deeply feel the hell he must have gone through. I can't even imagine surviving such horrible conditions. My heart and soul honor our veterans. Thank you for the respectful way you are honoring them with the website. Sincerely Lynn Posyton

I became engrossed in the history of the medal and the society and just wanted to drop a line to say that for one country to produce so many heroes is unbelievable.

He was awarded the Purple Heart, Silver Star and Distinguished Service Cross. I would love to be in contact with anyone that served with or knew my father. Also, I have been told that some of the DSC recipients are being reevaluated and some have been converted to Medals of Honor. Can anyone provide me with information as to how to go about submitting my father's information for consideration. I would greatly appreciate any help.

I wonder if anyone can help me find a website that could give me the names of the Fil-American guerillas who fought under the Talbac Regiment or any contact person from whom I can inquire about my father's claims for benefit as a veteran.Many thanks and I do hope that someone can help me, so that my father will be given the proper recognition he deserves in serving the country.

The background picture coming out of the Reservoir is called "TheEternal Band of Brothers." and has Army, Marine, Royal Marine and Korean Solders represented as the eternal band of brothers.

I'm a 13-yr old kid in Dayton, and I had to do a book report on the Japanese-American soldiers during World War 2. This is the only site I have found that has attainable information and has an outstanding inventory of facts and first-hand accounts on what really happened to the Japanese-Americans during that era. All I have to say is THANK YOU~~~!

My paternal grandfather served on the light cruiser USS Raleigh (CL-7) during World War Two and was at Pearl Harbor. His AA battery shot down the plane that hit the USS Curtiss. My maternal grandfather served on the sub USS Muskalunge in the Pacific Theatre and was in Tokyo Bay during the signing of the treaty at the end of the war. My father served on the carrier USS Hancock during the Vietnam. I am currently waiting to go to Parris Island to start my military career.

What a wonderful idea. I'm still perusing this site, there's just so much to read, and think about - but I'm determined to see it all! Now, help!
I'm trying to find out more about my uncle, JRZ Reynolds, Rear Admiral, retired who died 09-21-80 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery beside his wife Mary. Known as Dick to his family (Jimmy to his wife) and "Dome" in the Navy, Uncle Dick was born 01-01-09, graduated from USNA in 1931 and took command Feb. '42 of the S-37 seeing action in the Solomons and the Java Defense (Barrier 1) in WWII. How can I find out where in Arlington Cemetery he is buried? I'd love to hear from anyone who served with my uncle.

I teach 3rd grade and we are studying the history of our state. We are doing that by learning the settlement, growth, conflicts, etc. in a time-line fashion. We are now at the days preceeding the American Revolution. Fittingly, we are watching the Johnny Tremain (Disney movie about pre-Revolution events). The students are very interested in their heritage as Americans. I think it's great to see a rekindled spirit among even the youngest citizens. Your site is wonderful. I just don't know if we will have time to see all you have to offer. You are to be commended.

I am the sister of John Levitow - MOH winner 1970. I am just so proud to have had John as my brother. He was a quiet individual - not showy regarding his medal but he helped the enlisted soldiers for 22 years - he passed away on Nov. 8, 2000. It's disheartening to think that all the military personnel (and all of them were heroes)that went to Vietnam were not recognized when they returned. That is so sad. This site is really fantastic and I think Doug has done a subperb job

Great site, extremely well thought out. One question though.
There have been claims made that Medal of Honor recipient,
Lt. Edward Henry O'Hare, UN Navy, Ace combat pilot 1942 was
the son of the infamous Al Capone. How could I verify or
argue the point? Thanks, Tom firstname.lastname@example.org

Your information is incorrect. Edward O'Hare's
FATHER was KILLED by a member(s) of Al Capone's crime organization.
This site is wonderful for getting info for pearl harbor. I have to do a paper and this is the site to get stuff from. I give an A+ to whoever wrote this site!

As A VietNam vet serving as B-52 Crew chief in the 60's, I found your site very touching. I witnessed many heroic acts by junior associates during my service that went unrecognized by serior officers who just assumed we were just airplane mechanics. If they only knew the dedication it took to assure them safe flights and returns, they may have looked at us in a differnet light. Thank you for your recognition.

It's good to see that true heroism is indeed recognized. We live in a free land because of those who came before us. We will stay free only as long as we are willing to fight, and if necessary to die for it. May God bless those who fought and died so that we may live free.

Thank you for this story of your fathers life in the service. It gives me a look at the time that my grandfather was in the service.and even though I don't think he received any medals and he worked as a barber after his time in the army. I know that he to was truly a hero in his own right. Thank you so very much.
