July, 2006 - Thanks to a lot of help from my friend Bruce Swander, we are now posting ALL Distinguished Service Cross Citations for heroism in the Vietnam War. 
What may have seemed a long spell without updates doesn't reflect our lack of diligence in growing HomeOfHeroes.com. Throughout December and January we have done extensive work in upgrading our database of Navy Cross and DSC recipients. These are reflected is some very exciting new sections where you can print a number of new books: 

Posted in January 2006

November, 2005 - In our continuing work on the NC/DSC/AFC database we have posted numerous additional citations, some new books including the attractive MAJOR AWARDS in the WAR ON TERRORISM, and updated some of our other books. In our continuing efforts we have begun posting photos of many of these recipients, which are included both in the html pages and the WORD books as well. 

October 31, 2005 - We have made numerous updates in our Navy Cross pages including all citations for awards to US Marine in Nicaragua. We've also begun adding Navy Cross Citations for WWII and Korea, as well as updating other pages in that section.

October 15, 2005 - HOME TOWN HEROES is a brand new area of our website. On these pages we list recipients of the top military awards by State, County and City, so you can easily uncover the forgotten heroes of your own hometown.

KATRINA

September 7, 2005 - Our efforts to relocate families displaced by Hurricane Katrina prompted us to generate a page from which other communities can see (and hopefully emulate) our city's program to place Katrina Survivors into Rent/Utilities free homes for six or more months.

June 20, 2005 - We have begun posting, and have nearly completed, the MOH Gravesite section on NATIONAL CEMETERY burials. This nearly completes the entire Gravesite section, save for fewer than 25 photos yet needed and addition of any gravesites that are subsequently identified.

June 10, 2005 - Years ago your webmaster wrote and recorded two albums of Gospel Music. As a more personal aside, for those who might be interested, I've added the music from my first album in 1979 in MP3 format.

Stolen Valor
Act of 2005

May 30, 2005 - Congressman John Salazar (D/CO-3) is preparing to introduce legislation dealing with the problem with Medal Fraud and imposters. We've created a section for this important legislation, including the Policy Analysis treatise that is the basis for this needed action to protect the integrity of military awards.

H. Res. 297

May 30, 2005 - Congressman John Salazar (D/CO-3) has joined with Congressman Mike Rogers (R/MI-7) to introduce H. Res 297 to establish a National Medal of Honor Day. We've created a special page to track the progress of that new legislation.

May 23, 2005 - Steve Ryan is a long-time supporter of HomeOfHeroes.com. He has developed a number of MOH posters, many of which were autographed by the various recipients. We have posted Steve Ryan's Art in a section that contains both autographed posters and autographed photos. 

May 18, 2005 - As an added feature we've begun including a synopsis of each recipient's MOH action on their gravesite page. 
May 15, 2005 - We have identified grave sites and memorials for 2,864 MOH recipients, and how have photos of 2,802 of them. Your help is appreciated in obtaining photos of the 62 remaining gravesites. 

May 1, 2005 - We've now posted the roster of all WWII recipients of the Navy Cross, which makes our list of Navy Cross recipients complete for all wars. I am still working on citations, and welcome submission of any information and/or citations for the Navy Cross from the end of WWI until the end of the Korean War. 

CHAT

May 1, 2005 - Check out our new online CONFERENCE ROOM. We have a scheduled meeting on open topics every Thursday evening from 7 - 10 PM (Mountain Time).

April 15, 2005 - The process of identifying and recording recipients of high awards other than the Medal of Honor (DSC/NC/AFC) has been consuming much or our time, which is reflected in slow updates.  We now have a number of citations books, available FREE in Word Format from the icon at left. Some of our earliest books have been updated with newly obtained citations.

February 1, 2005 - Our database of public officials has been updated to reflect all governors, senators, and congressmen and congress women effective subsequent to last November's election. 

FCMOH

December 20, 2005 - The official website for the Family of the Congressional Medal of Honor has been posted within this website. It contains new information, membership sign-up forms, as well as a members only area.
July 2004 - The recent purchase (at last) of a new computer has given me a more accurate view of the screen.  (My old clunker was making images appear lighter than they were so were often too DARK for other computers.  I've redone ALL recipient photos for RVN and Korea and added scores of new pictures to those sections.  As time allows I will be doing the same for other recipient photos.  (See updates at the bottom of this page.

WAR ON
TERROR

May 2004 - Go here for links to printable citations for awards of the DSC, Navy Cross, and Air Force Cross to heroes of the current War on Terror. 

Ploesti

January 24, 2004 - We are experimenting with Streaming Video.  Check out our newest online historical movie. 

FORUM

January 1, 2004 - We have posted lists and citations for most of the Navy Cross recipients in the interim between the two World Wars. 

December 20 - We completed and posted the gravesites of nearly all the MOH recipients buried in the State of New York.  We have now posted photos of 2,510 of 2,839 identified Medal of Honor gravesites, and this major project is now 88% complete.  Please visit our page on NEEDED GRAVESITE PHOTOS to see if you can help us complete this section of our website.

Pearl
Harbor

June 14 - Our Pearl Harbor series of stories has been updated and improved.  It was one of our first series and my learning curve has increased greatly since that early feeble attempt.  The Pearl Harbor downloadable book has been vastly improved and expanded.  If you printed the earlier version, you may want to revisit. 

US
PRESIDENTS

June 10 - We have completed a very attractive E-Book on the Presidents of the United States that can be downloaded in WORD.  This book is great for schools or just your personal collection.  Check out all of our E-Books. 


Now Available - The Microsoft WORD or .PDF version of our Wings Of Valor - Volume I is now available.  This is a very large WORD file (3 separate PDF files) because it contains all the text and images for a 251-page, full color book detailing the history and heroism of our military aviators from the Wright Brothers first flight to World War I.  This is a GREAT book, and we encourage you to print and give copies to all you know.
