Though the correct title for our Nation's highest military award is the MEDAL OF HONOR, the organization that represents the men who wear it is the CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR SOCIETY, for it was established and chartered by the U.S. Congress.   The intents and purposes of the organization are clearly spelled out it its charter and can be found in our History of the Society pages.

Headquartered aboard the U.S.S. YORKTOWN at Patriot's Point South Carolina, it is also home to the official MEDAL OF HONOR MUSEUM.  The small but dedicated staff works with a limited budget to maintain the history and heritage of our Country's greatest heroes while co-coordinating numerous other activities.  In addition to maintaining the ROLL OF HONOR, the museum, and volumous files on Medal of Honor recipients, the Society:

  • Maintains an open line of communication among our living Medal of Honor recipients so that they are up-to-date on the welfare of each other, as well as publication of a periodic newsletter of events and activities in which the recipients are involved.

  • Notifies all of the recipients immediately whenever one of their fellow recipients has passed away.

  • Hosts annual reunions of the living recipients in cities around the United States.

  • Assists communities, organizations, schools, and individuals in patriotic programs related to the Medal of Honor and its recipients.

  • Forwards mail to the living recipients from people all over the world and answering questions regarding the Medal or its recipients.

  • Maintains the Medal of Honor Society Scholarship Fund that has insured a solid education for the children of our Medal of Honor recipients.

  • and much, MUCH more!
