Living Medal of Honor Recipients'

BIRTHDAYS

The listing below shows the birthdays of each of our living Medal of Honor recipients.  We encourage you to remember these often forgotten heroes on their special day, perhaps even send them a birthday card with a note of thanks for their contribution to America.  This is an especially good project for schools, youth organizations, and other programs that seek to help our young people learn the meaning of patriotism and service.
