When a Medal of Honor is presented with an accompanying citation setting forth the action for which it was received, the recipient's name is added to the official ROLL OF HONOR maintained by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.  Each such award is accredited to the state at which its recipient entered military service.  Medals of Honor have been accredited to EVERY STATE of the United States except Alaska.  One Alaska resident did receive the Medal of Honor but entered service in Washington State, to which his award is accredited.  Also, during World War II, one soldier received the Medal for heroism on the battlefields of Alaska.   Thus EVERY state does have a unique association to the Medal.

Of our Nation's 3,425 IDENTIFIED Medal of Honor recipients, all but 56 are accredited to one of our 50 states or the District of Columbia.  Of these heroes, 2,563 entered service in the state of their birth, thus the accreditation for their Medal of Honor is without dispute.   In presenting the ROLL OF HONOR by STATE in the following pages, we have first taken into account the state to which each recipient's Medal is accredited.  We have also listed for you each recipient BORN in that state who's Medal of Honor was accredited to another state.  The Map below shows the disbursement of Medal of Honor Awards by State.  You can click on it to access a larger, printable image.

  WEB NOTE:  We have done our best to insure the accuracy of these pages by cross-referencing several different sources.  In those rare times when descrepencies were found in the records we have defaulted to the information compiled in the TWO VOLUME compendium compiled by Medal of Honor recipient GEORGE LANG, former CMOH Society Director GIRARD F. WHITE, and Raymond Collins.  We believe this record to be the best researched and most accurate.  To advise of corrections or provide additional information, please feel free to:
