Welcome to the Web Site of the Home of Heroes. I'm United States
Congressman John Salazar, and I would like to introduce you to some very special
Americans, the Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients.
You are about to embark
on an educational journey into the Home Of Heroes which is located in Pueblo,
Colorado. This Web Site will provide you with up to date information on what is
taking place at the actual construction site and allow you to begin to understand the
commitment these people have made in maintaining the freedoms all Americans enjoy.
Medal of Honor
recipients have demonstrated their patriotism and love of freedom through their heroic
efforts during armed conflict. The sacrifices these people have made to protect the
freedoms this country enjoys is worthy of the highest commendation. They have risked
their lives to promote American ideals and jeopardized their dreams so that we could
remain free. These soldiers are people we can all look up to as symbols of honor and
respect and love of country. I salute them.
Enjoy your experience as
you learn about each of these individuals and the awards they have received. Their
deeds are an inspiration to children and adults alike, and we must never forget their
valor in combat.
John T. Salazar
Member of Congress
