56 Medals of Honor are Accredited to Connecticut

  • Two Medals of Honor were awarded for non-combat, life-saving heroism in the waters of Connecticut.

  • Native Son JOHN LEVITOW was the only enlisted-rank airman to receive the AIR FORCE Medal of Honor (excluding WWII Army Air Corps), and at age 23 was the youngest airman ever to receive the award.  (On December 8, 2000 one additional enlisted airman was added to the Honor Roll.)

"For Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity in Action At the Risk of Life Above and Beyond the Call of Duty"
