Areally grand, inspiring and informative site. Can you post on your site what perks the medal provides the ones who earned it. I had heard that an enlisted MOH recipient warrants a salute from an officer. Is that right?

With tears streaming down my face, I finished reading the tribute that Doug gave about his "father" William Crawford. I was so touched by how giving and unpretentious this hero was. Thanks for touching my life with this story and this great web site. I plan on reading some of these to my middle school students as well as my own children. I hope they are as touched as I am!

I recently had the distinguished honor to sit in and listen to MAJ Drew Dix, a CM of H recipion. He was the guest speaker for my US/Vietnam Experience class at Rock Bridge High School. He told many stories and gave very great aspects of the war and other life lessons. He gave me insight into many questions I have had. He also shared his experiences with us and definitely gave me some more perspectives on the war then and the war now with the wake of the 9/11 attacks. I'd like to send a personal, heartfelt thank you to Major Drew Dix for his time.

Proud that my home town paper had an artcle about you. When I was growing up in Pueblo,CO nothing was ever said about a mexican winning the MEDAL OF HONOR. You an other Mexican medal winners should all be remembered. My uncle John Sanchez was a medal winner not the medal of honor but the Bronze Star. He was also was a Mexican National, born in Jerez, Zacatecas Mexico. I am proud of you Mr. Herrera and proud to have served my country U.S. Navy (1951-53).

I served in the USAF from April 1978 to Dec 1982 mainly with the 27th TFW and the 33TFW. I was never called upon to place my life in harms way. It is humbling to read of the personnel sacrifice of those who were before and after me and their families. Many times people forget the loss that individual families have suffered for our country. It's an old but true saying..."Freedom is never free". Thank You for you sacrifice. May God bless you richly and may God Bless America

I am a daughter of an American US Army soldier assigned to the Philippines during World War2. I am looking for his companions who also escaped from the infamous "Death March".I would like to know more about the Filipino guerrilla outfit headed by Marking which my dad and a certain Atwell joined after escaping from that death march. My dad passed away in 1981. I would like to write a book someday about the exploits of these courageous Filipinos and Americans. My mother too, was in that outfit, helping the wounded. That's why I am half-Filipino, half-American, a child of that war.

I have read some of the stories on your site, and will read them all, but for now, I am deeply moved, so have decided to read them slowly, rationing them to myself as it were. I am a Veteran of the Vietnam war, and have struggled all my life to find meaning in the sacrifices all of us made there. Maybe reading your stories will help. I do know that in these trying times, the stories of ordinary men doing extraordinary things is uplifting..Thanks.

Started looking for sites that could add to our Veterans Day program. This site is fantastic!... I had visited the page one time and saw all the receipiants listed by the conflict they were in, and I could click on the picture and got a story about them and the story behind the medal. I miss that now....or not looking in the right spot....Looking especially for the story for Alfredo "Freddy" Gonzalez. I wanted to show it to a student with the same name. I will be returning to this site often! I also share it with as many people as I can.... Thank you for all the work you have put into this site, and thank you men and women for all you have done for us in the USA.

A great site and I'm proud to visit. I'm a Marine with 30-years service, including combat in Korea and Viet Nam. I feel so sorry for those Americans who don't know what it is to put their country first -- at least once in their lives.

Thanks for the great site! I enjoyed reviewing my grandfather's, Alton W. Knappenberger WWII CMOH, history and picture. Grandpop never really talked or talks about his Army days. He is extremely humble about it. He has been invited to a lot of political functions but never went. He has pictures of himself with different governmental officials but keeps them in a box with his medals, not on display. All of my brothers, sisters, cousins and myself are so proud of him and love him dearly. Thank you to all of the veterans who helped make this country what it is today.

On a small knoll in the Quang-Tri province of South Vietnam, on Sept.4th 1967 as a young Marine I watched "a few good men" answer the call from our Nation and our God. They didn't flinch, nor did they run. There was no "political correctness" to worry about. No problem with the color of anothers skin or the language we spoke or our place of birth. We were all "Americans" fighting for our Country. Among those with me were Sgt.Lawrence Peters, my squad leader, and US Navy Chaplain Lt.Vincent Robert Capodanno, we called him "Fr.Vince" or "Padre". These two brave men are on your list on this site. I pray today that what we have learned since the 11th of September 2001, will stir the bellies of our Nations people. We are at risk of losing our freedoms in the Country, not by any laws that might be inacted, but by the "Apathy" of our citizens. This is not the first time we have seen the distruction of terriorists. Remember "Somolia", USS Cole, US Marine Barracks in Lebanon? Did we bury our heads in the sand? Have we let the "fuzzy feel good" polititicans take over our schools,language,the word "God"????? This Country "loaths" the Military until they are needed. Too much money wasted on the Military, (until the need arises). Its time America to get our heads out of the shady part of our bodies, don't let the memories of these brave men and women listed on this site be in vain. They deserve better than they are getting. Just remember this, not everyone has a computer or reads mail on a computer. The media knows how we feel, but they don't broadcast our views. Its time to get "Vocal". God Bless Ray Harton Cpl.

Absolutely awsome!!!!! I wish that posters or plaques with these heroes story and picture could be posted in every school in America. I think todays youth are somewhat cynical and they don't have many good role models to look up to. Maybe something like this would give them an idea about what sacrafice, duty, commitment, honor, pereservance, and selflessness are all about. I would also like to express my respect for my uncle, whom I never had a chance to meet as he gave his life in WW II. Lt jg Aubrey C. Isley U.S.Navy. He was a pilot on a PBY Catalina. All I know about my uncle is that his plane went out on patrol in the Pacific and never returned. He was never heard from or found, and was listed as MIA. I grew up listening to my family talk about Uncle Aubrey and how he was never found. It gave me a deep respect for veterans and the sacrifices they made to keep us free. Every Memorial Day, I take my sons to the services at the local cemetary and we honor the memory of those who gave their lives and the ones who served. I think it is important that we as a nation, never forget the sacrifices of all our veterans. GOD BLESS those who served and those who serve now!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

They truly show selfless service and what it means to serve your country by giving of there self for the good of others even if it meant they lost there own life and if I have to die in combat I hope that I can display there courage.

Doug thanks for sending me this link and thanks for making a site steeped in history and honoring those men and women who served this country with honor. They are all heroes in my heart. We all honor those who won the MoH, may God bless them for their bravery and courage in the face of the odds against them. I also want the others who served this country to know that I honor them as well and with deep respect for the things they did without complaint so we could all live in a free society. To me all veterans are heroes that have earned our respect and thanks. We sent our very best to Hell and many came back broken in mind and body, yet they'd do it all again for this country and us, and I pray everyday that those who came back will one day all be truly home. Thank you again for honoring these men and women, God bless you and all men and women who served this great country without hesitation. You're all very special people.

Thank you for a wonderful sight. My grandfather fought in WWII and he does not speak much of it. I have 3 uncles that fought in Vietnam and family that fought on both sides of the Civil War. I thank them as I thank every veteran for the freedom I have today because of their efforts. We are forever changed since the attack of Sept. 11th, I personally am framing the flag raising by the fireman as a constant reminder to me and my family that UNITED WE STAND and I am proud to be an American. I agree with Ernest Childers, we as a nation need to get past skin color. If history serves me correctly all Americans immigrated to this country, the "true" orignal Americans were the Native Americans. I personally hope that we continue to stand together as a Nation, united as one, that we do not loot and take advantage of anothers loss. I pray there are no lawsuits against the airlines or other companies, this is not a time for petty lawsuits but a time to pull together as a nation, and attack the real enemy, the terrorist and bring them to justice. The Catholic in me says thou shall not kill, the American in me says take no prisoners. We shall prevail at any cost! Godd Bless America, and each and everyone one of us.

All I can say is THANK-YOU to all of the receivers of the Medal Of Honor. We as Americans often take our freedom as that...free...freedom wasn't given it was earned. In times such as this we must stand together, not as whites or blacks or Asians or Latinos or Jews Or even Islamics, but as AMERICANS. Maybe now, in the wake of such horror inflicted upon our great nation, all AMERICANS will stand up for there freedom and basic born rights that all Americans were born free and equal and take a stand against terrorism. I think that in my 30 years of existance that i personally have never seen at a baseball game EVERY SINGLE person around me singing the National Anthem, it was an awe-inspiring, nation binding chorus of what this country REALLY stands for. Let no man strike this great nation down. So, in closing, All I ask is that if you know anyone that has served in the military... PLEASE TELL THEM THANK-YOU. They sacraficed there lives, there beliefs, and there values so that you and I have the FREEDOM that we hold so dear. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I am heartened to see the outpouring of patriotic spirit here, for we always need to remember our heroes! I invite those who pass here to visit my "Vietnam Picture Tour, from the lens and poet’s pen of a combat infantryman, from one who's walked the walk, and can talk the talk...Take a walk in "the park" with the 1st Air Cavalry on combat patrol, that in reality will give you the sweet and sour taste of "the Nam" on your tongue, leave the pungent smell of "the Nam" acrid in your nostrils, and imbed textures of "the Nam" in your brain as though you were walking beside me in combat.

Wonderful Site! At the last page it finally hit me hard, there on that page is a photo of William (Bill) Prom. What a really great kid. He was one of the Machinegunners in my Team in Vietnam. I remember him like it was yesterday. Wish I could have been with him that day but, I had already rotated back to the world. Didn't find out until 1976 that Bill had not made it back and that he had Won THe Medal Of Honor. I was terribly saddened by his death but strange as it may seem, I was proud of what he had done. Bill Prom will always be a part of my life and memories. Thanks So Much For This Site. God Bless Danny Medders I Co.3/3 67-68

Would like to find out if my father, John A. Kirkham III might be entitled to the Distinguished Flying Cross. He served aboard B-17's as navigator/bombadier during WW 2. His plane was hit by flak and crashed in Germany on his 35th and final mission. As it crashed in a recently plowed field, it filled with mud and he dug down into the mud to help his crewmates out of the plane. He also gave aid to a severely injured crewman, who later died of his injuries. As we will be attending a POW reunion tour and banquet this coming September, I would like to find out as soon as possible so he might possibly be awarded this during the trip. My address is 15 Bittersweet Lane, Ivoryton, CT 06442. Phone/fax is 860-767-7317. Thank for for any assistance you may provide in this matter.

Doing research on 16 chaplains who lost their lives in Vietnam for story. Have enough on heroes awarded Medal of Honor and 4 others. Need more than date of death, rank, and religion for ARMY: William J. Barragy, William Feaster, Michael J. Quealy, James J.L. Johnson, Ambrosio S. Grandea, Don L. Bartley, Roger W. Heinz, Phillip Nichols, Merle D. Brown. NAVY: William J. Garrity Jr. All I can find is a brief, one paragraph sketch on these martyrs.

Thanks to Mr Lemon and others, especially the ones that gave the ultimate sacrafice, I am still able to talk to a friend that was there on Illingsworth that fatefull day. I will never forget the scene of total destruction and the charred smoking ground and men, when I flew into Illingsworth shortly after the enemy contact was broken. The ammo dump had not been dug in and when the fire caused it to blow up the entire firebase was scorched and littered with hot smoking rounds of munitions of all types.

Dear Sirs, I'm interested in finding out more about Bernard Bell Medal of Honor winner. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross at Selestat and was also awarded the Silver Star with clusters. Who was this man? I'm damn proud of him. My father pfc. Steve Underwood also fought at Selestat, but with another company A, 142nd. Very close to here Audie Murphy was awarded the Medal of Honor. In fact if you put all the WW2 Medal of Honor recipients in small type on about 3 pages, the southern France, and Colmar campaigns account for about a third of them! This is very impressive viewing the cities of France in this manner. My father was awarded the purple heart at Selestat. Please get me some information on Bell. GregColmar@hotmail.comGreg

Unto whom has fame and fortune befell, The rich and fancy CEO, and his self made corporate hell To whom do we own so much in these times of greed but to those who think america was tilded from that seed For those who shed not blood nor pain For those who the flag mean fortune and fame Look to the sky, and listen to the wind You'll hear the whispers over and over again It is us, the unsung, the hero's who are not No shiny medals for those forgot But with our blood, we died not in vain So America could shine, though she's shines slightly stained

THANK YOU for the education and reminder to be ever thankful for men who lost their lives. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is my Hero, but it is good to have men and women that can be secondary heroes and offer an endless supply of illustrations of what true selflessness is.

Many of our members do not have access to the WWW due to finances and age. Do you give permission to reprint any of your work in cases such as ours? Guy Hall

Particularly enjoyed the MOH citations for 12/7/41. Went to h.s with a kid named Cassin Young Stacy. He went by Ted and never mentioned any history about his name. I wonder now what his or his dad's relationship was to the recipient of The Medal.Also went to h.s. In Wahiawa, Oahu from 59 to 62. Who would have believed that Hawaii's first elected senator Inoye from the 442 "Go For Broke" would still be serving the good people of Hawaii.

Since reading this website, which is most imformative, and being the sister of John L. Levitow, it is too bad that a commentary regarding MOH recipients is not on TV. These men need to get the recognition that they deserve. With the junk that they put on the TV today this would be a most inspiring documentary. My granddaughter, who is 9 wrote a report entitled "What is a Hero" she wrote about her uncle. I was so proud. She said that he was the only one she knew as a hero.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to a great guy. 25 Years ago when I was a young man in the Army at Fort Benning, my Platoon Sergeant (James Bondsteel)convinced me to become an officer and then recommended me for OCS. I went on to serve as an officer in the 11th Armored Calvary Regiment. Just today I got around to looking into his background. I am now a relatively successful professional basketball coach. I am honored that a man of his caliber thought that I should be a leader. I have never forgotten the lessons I learned from him and I hope that our country never forgets to honor men like him. In times like these we need heroes..... Thanks Jim and good luck where ever you are. Ray Ingram

What a site!!!, Congratulations to the webmaster and organizers for such an inspiring site. As a military person and Viet Nam vet I do admire all the MOH awardees. Specially those who paid the ultimate price. Please do remember the other 52,000 on "The Wall". They also paid the ultimate price. Thanks again for such a great and inspiring site.

Thank you for all of your efforts! I have a special interest in the "Medal Of Honor Grove" located at Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge. I am presently disappointed in the maintenance and upkeep of the memorial grounds.I am also surprised that I have not found any mentions of the 'Grove' on other MOH links. Any info will be appreciated.

Thank you for this inspirational site. The unselfish acts of bravery of these true heroes has touched my heart. My genealogy endeavors have taken me on many military searches. My uncle, Arnold Lee Bjorklund, was presented the Medal Of Honor for his service during WW 11. He's buried at the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon. He never spoke of his military service. Thanks to sites like this, these humble heroes will not be forgotten.

I logged onto the site to attempt to find info about my late stepfather Charles R. Barron, who, upon his death in 1988, I was told he received a MOH posthumously. He was a veteran of WWII in the Marine Corps, an anti-aircraft gunner at Guadalcanal. After the Marines he enlisted in the Army and fought in the Korean War. I was told by his daughter that then President Reagan awarded the MOH to him, yet I see no record of it on the site. He is buried in Virginia, but was born in Tennesee. If he was indeed a recipient, I feel his name needs to be added to the list of heroes. Though he died years after his service to our country, people other than just his family need to be made aware of what a real hero is. BTW, the site is the best I've seen thus far.

Good site . The write-up for Edward C. Benfold has his name misspelt . You have "Benford" . He has a ship named for him if you don't believe me . My grandmother was a cousin of Gen. Smedley Butler . He had a nice story in the "Smithsonian Magazine" once . He probably deserved a third Medal of Honor . And he lived to serve the Corps and country other ways . He was known as "The Fighting Quaker" since he came from a pacifist religion . He resembled Gen. Stillwell in many ways -- including being close to his men and leading the charge . Saw on your site the we also have another Smedley recipient , Cpl. Larry E. Smedley . I am retired from the Navy . What do you folks think about the Chinese capture of the P3 , which i helped develop ? I think the crew should have bailed out and destroyed the plane . Now , we should force the return . Ben

many years ago I heard a man tell the story of the four chaplains. I thought he was talking about a movie.What a great movie" I thought. I ask the man who stared in the movie. It was then I found out it was true, When he showed me the stamp I was surprised. What they did was what the American soul is all about. These are the kind of man I wish I had as heros growing up(I'm 52 and a vietnam vet).It's more interesting that most Americans-today- don't know this great story.

He never really talked about the war, but i do remember the only time i ever saw him cry he was talking about one of his officers, he said "He was the bravest man i ever knew." So from now on when i find a quest bood to sign or some place i find to type a message i do.... in memory of my grandfather.

AFTER A LOW-LEVEL BAIL-OUT OVER YUGOSLAVIA, HE WAS RESCUED BY THE PARTISANS AND WAS WITH THEM FOR 3 WEEKS. HE WAS RETURNED TO ALLIED FORCES ON OCT.21,1944. HE WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM ANYONE HE SERVED WITH. THANK YOU, HIS NEPHEW, JIM
