I just briefly knew Airman Pitsenbarger. I new he had died in Viet Nam but never found out what happened until last week when I saw it on TV. He is only the 2nd enlisted man in the Air Force to ever receive the Medal but why did it take 34 years.

What a shame that so many kids in this country regard highly paid athletes, TV/movie and rock stars as heroes.

My just saying I enjoyed the site seems kind of frivelous to me. I was overcome by emotion reading the stories and hearing the music.. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank the men and women who were at Pearl Harbor on December 7,1941.. Their courage and sacrifices should never be forgotten. In fact I think the more years that pass since then, their acts of courage should be remembered and honored by all Americans.

Although this is a great site I am ashamed that you have only labeled those that have recieved the MOH as the "REAL" heroes. All the men and women who have served are the REAL HEROES not just those who have been cited with the MOH. I understand that those who have earned the Medal have done something extraordinary but that does not make them any better than the rest of those who have and continue to serve.

Thank you for all of the wonderful work that has gone into this site. I am thrilled to have found it. While we are greatful to all who have served our country, it is especially fitting that there be a place honoring these most special heroes. A few weeks ago I was at Annapolis and was walking into the bookstore as an older gentleman was approaching me. We exchanged hellos and smiles. As we passed I noticed the Medal of Honor around his neck. I was frozen in shock. I had never seen a man wearing the MOH before. Had I not been so stunned I would like to have shaken his hand. It was an honor just to be in his presence. In your gallery of heros, I did see the picture of John Paul Bobo, who I went to college with. Unfortuately John paid the ultimate price in receiving the Medal of Honor. "No greater love can a man have than that he would lay down his life for his friends." Thank you to all our troops from all wars whether their sacrifice is know to many or to God alone. Jerry Norton

Horward when he needed help, and he loved Susie Littrell for her help.Were honored to have Medal Of Honor people living ibn this area. In Tampa, Florida, about April 2001 a Navy Ship will be named after Lt. Cdr. Clyde E. Lassen who earned the Medal Of Honor in Vietnam on June 19, 1969. He's from Florida, died April 1, 1994, buried in Pensacola, He was a helicopter pilot with the Navy, he was a LT. at time of award. Tampa, Florida is also home to the late Lt. Baldomero,, M.O.H., (KIA) USMC, born & raised in Tampa....Again, the Medal Of Honor people Honor Us, were proud to have Lt. Col. Ron Ray, MOH, U.S. Army (Ret) living in St. Petersburg Beach, another great guy also He and Gary, klike a number of other of Medal Of Honor people hold a Phd (* Purple heart, Decorated.... Phd....

I can't believe how this site has evolved. A beautiful job. It's even more inspirational (with one exception) than when I first pulled it up last Feburary. That one exception is the use of Dennis Rodman as an example of "What is a hero". With all the exemplary athletes who would be good examples for out youth today why did you pick him? Other than that I can find no fault with all you have done. I will visit often.----- P.S. A HAPPY BIRTHDAY to MOH recepient Gary Littrell on October 26th.

I want to thank you for the work you have put into this site. It is inspiring. I got to your site because of the McGovern Brothers who went to St. John's in Washington, DC. When I went to St. John's we learned about these two brave men, it was part of the JROTC program and something I will never forget. I have since come back to St. John's as Director of Development and will have the privilege to honor these two men during 2001, the 50th anniversary of their death in Korea. Thank you for the inspiration and I hope I can help inspire another generation of St. John's students in the importance of selfless service to our country and placing the needs of those around us above our own personal needs.

This is a wonderful site. My heart felt thank you goes out to every man and woman who served our country and defended our freedom. I lost a father in WW II, he was Sergeant Edward James Sickles, 82nd Airborne. That was February 18th, 1943 and my mother, who never remarried, still grieves. May God bless all those, like my mother, who lost family members in the name of freedom. If not for them, would my grandchildren be able to play at will, pray, go to the school of their choice or just be FREE, happy and permitted to enjoy their childhoods as Americans? Only God and the Armed Forces made this possible.

I would like to thank all involved in putting the Home of Heroes together. I was able to locate and print a picture and some articles on my uncle Noah Odell Knight for my mother. He was a recipient of the Medal of Honor for his heroism near Kowang-San, Korea on the 23rd and 24th of November 1951. He also has a Parade Field named after him in Korea and a Swimming Pool at Fort Jackson S.C. If anyone has a picture of the Parade Field in Korea I would love to have one for my mother who is his sister. I am thrilled to see and read some of the information on my uncle because all during my growing up I have heard stories and now it nice to be able to see some of the things that I have been told. Thanks to all who had a part of this very memorable experience. Carolyn Herron

As the daughter of a P-38 pilot KIA over Germany on April 13, 1945, I truly appreciate your site. I am fortunate enough to know the men from my father's fighter squadron, the 428th, which is part of the 474th fighter group. To spend time in their company honors my father and the others who lost their lives in war. They never forget, always say it "should have been me, not your dad" and I love them for all they give me. Above all, these men who survived and those who didn't deserve a memorial and I support the efforts toward that end in Washington, DC. Thanks for giving us all a place to visit where we can be touched and reminded of the cost of war. Sharon Estill Taylor, daughter of 1st Lt. Shannon Eugene Estill.

Dear Rolanda, thank you for your kind comments, but I must quickly insure that you realize that I HAVE NOT received the Medal of Honor. While I am a veteran of service, I am simply a historian for those who wear the Medal of Honor, certainly not among their high stature. Perhaps you are refering to the award presented to me by the Medal of Honor Society, but that IS NOT the Medal of Honor, but a recognition by the men who wear it. Thanks again, Doug Sterner, webmaster

My grandfather is a WWII Navy veteran and a 23 year veteran of the US Coast Guard. In all he served 26 years in our nations armed forces. I myself served for nearly four years in the Coast Guard. My father served in the Air Force for nearly six years during the Vietnam conflict. The commitment my family has made to our country, in time, is great but does not compare to those who have given their blood, their bodies and their lives. I have been fortunate to have met three CMOH recipients and truly wish that there were more of these fine gentlemen with us. Your site here does great honor to them, the recipients, and every veteran who has served. Thank you very much and keep up the good work. God Bless America

Are you familiar with the Medal of Honor Historical Society? We perpetuate the memories of the men (and woman) and deeds of the Medal of Honor. I joined in 1989, and since then have marked the graves of Travis Watkins, Neel Kearby, Joshua Hartzog, John Kennedy, John King (Two Medals of Honor!) and Marcellus Newman. On November 11 we will dedicate a Texas Historical Marker for James Dosher at Fort Richardson in Jacksboro, TX. Dosher is one of two former Confederates and the only Texas Ranger to earm the Union Medal of Honor, which he earned by rescuing Cynthia Parker, mother of Quanah Parker, possibly the greatest Native American Chief ever.

I was just reading your bio on him and saw that you have him listed as a West Point graduate. It is true that he did go to West Point a couple of times, however, he did not graduate. He went to OCS and did not receive his degree until after his first Vietnam experience. This being said, I am not trying to criticize your cite.

As the son of Medal of Honor recipient Raymond G. Murphy (Pueblo, Co.) I am very impressed with this web-site. This is very informative to those who are not to familiar with the Medal or those who have recieved the Medal. I get a little concerned when some of our teachers or leaders of society do not understand what this award represents for our country. I am appreciative to the hard work put into this site, so we all have a tool to point these people towards and help them learn more about these men that have recieved the award. The Medal of Honor recipients are all men of tremendous humility, and it is our duty as family, friends, or historians to not let the people of this country, especially our children, lose the importance and appreciation of these men and their brethren that fought for our lifestyle today.

About 5 years ago, I was invited to attend a reception for the living MOH recipients in Philadelphia. I tink for all of us non-MOH recipients in the room, there was a sense of awe of these men. These were no Rambo types, just the guys next door. Yet knowing what is required to receive such an honor, hearing them talk in quiet tones about their deeds, and almost to a man all saying "But I'm not special. A lot of guys did the same stuff; somebody just happened to see me doing it and wrote it down", you knew this was a once in a lifetime experience, to share some time with genuine heroes. It is truely one of my treasured memories that I hope you all get to share some day.

Hi, I found your site very informative and interesting. I am an 8th grade special education teacher who is currently developing an extra credit activity for my students in which they research CMOH recipients of Latino-American descent for Latino-American History month (September). I had read at a different site that many of the CMOH recipients were (are) of Latino-American descent. I felt that this would be an activity that my students could take pride in, and also show strong examples of dedication, bravery, and sacrifice. As a veteran, I appreciate the sacrifices of those who served, and continue to do so, in defense of our country. Thanks and take care! Tom Clark, Jr.

I photograph the graves of MOH recipients to preserve their memory. Many graves are unmarked & I try to have a plaque or stone erected with the help of our local SUV camp. They should be remembered.

I'm the Historian for the 15th Field Artillery Regiment and need some assistance please. The History of the 2nd Inf Div "Second to None" 1950-51, lists both 1LT Lee Hartell and SFC Jimmie Hollaway, 15th FA Bn, as recipients of the CMOH. What little I've been able to find about the 15th FA Bn during the Korean War indicates that Jimmie Hollaway may have gotten the DSC instead. What if anything can you tell me about SFC Jimmie Hollaway? Also, do you have a picture of 1LT Lee Hartell that we can purchase to hang in the 15th FA Regimental Room. For those interested in info about CMOH recipients, the 15th FA Regimental Room is located within the Bn HQs of the 2nd Bn, 15th FAR, 10th Inf. Div. (Mountain), at Fort Drum, NY. This 15th FA Regimental Room was recently named as the "Hartell Room" in honor of 1LT Lee Hartell who won the CMOH with the 15th FA Bn during the Korean War. The only picture of 1LT Lee Hartell we have been able to locate was an artists sketch. Further, on 28 July 2000, I attended the Dedication Ceremony at Ft Drum in which the 2nd Bn, 15th FAR, commanded by LTC Sam Johnson, named their Bn HQs as "Durham Hall" in honor of 2LT Harold "Pinky" Durham who was awarded the CMOH while serving as an Artillery Forward Observer in Vietnam while assigned to the 6th Bn, 15th FA. Both Pinky's brother, John Durham, and his sister, Genie Durham-Knapp were present for this dedication. Any info you can provide regarding SFC Jimmie Hollaway would be greatly appreciated. Also, any help in obtaining a picture of 1LT Lee Hartell, or contact with his family would truly be a blessing. ALLONS! (Lets Go!) Dan Gillotti, Historian, 15th FA Regiment

My Dad was not into the internet, but could tell you anything about the society, its members and the history of the medal. He was proud to convey this to his fellow veterans when called upon to do so. He exemplified the mission of the society and loved his fellow receipients, as they did him. He was a great man and will be missed terribly. My Dad is Charles MacGillivary

My parents, Clarence and Tamae Craft, attend the CMHS conventions on a regular basis and while they were visiting me here in Seattle they learned about the new Hall of Heroes Museum for the first time through this website. I'm sure they've received information about it in the mail, but Clarence says that he receives so many newsletters that he may have overlooked it. However, I am glad that I can keep track of information through this site and relay it to my folks. This is a spectacular webpage. Thanks. Sally Brucker.

I come from Indonesia. I don't know much about the Congressional Medal of Honor. I only know that the person who received it are the person who show bravery and courage during the battle. I like to know more about the people. Can you send me a book about who received it and how they earned it. Thank you. God bless America because they have many excellent heroes to defend their country

Is it possible to obtain a color photograph of the Medal of Honor which would have been issued in 1897? We, of the Washington National Guard State Historical Society, are researching the Medal awarded to Michael McCarthy for Indian Wars action.
