New York Medal of Honor Recipients
Non-Combat Awards

  • Of 189 TOTAL Medals of Honor Awarded for Non-Combat Heroism, 62 went to New York servicemen.   These actions should not be minimumized for their lack of combat heroism--they still involved valor above and beyond the call of duty at the risk of life.  New York's JOHN LAVER MATHER received TWO Medals of Honor, one for combat action during the Civil War under an alias, the second for non-combat heroism a year later when he saved 3 shipmates from drowning.

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