The Pyramid of Honor

Medals can be a fascinating subject.  There are several directions you can go when visiting this display.  The pages below provide a historical perspective on military medals and how they developed into the present Pyramid of Honor.  You can also research the medals earned by a special veteran in your life and print or even post in the HomeOfHeroes website, your own special tribute to him or her.  You can also visit the graphics pages below to see all of the medals in several different layouts, listed by order of precedence.  Each image in our graphics library is hyperlinked to a pop-up window with additional information on each military award.
