19 Medals of Honor are Accredited to North Carolina

  • During the Civil War 123 Medals of Honor were awarded for action "on the ground" in North Carolina.

  • World War II hero JACK LUCAS received the Medal of Honor for heroic sacrifice at Iwo Jima just 5 days after his 17th birthday...becoming the YOUNGEST American in this century to receive the award.   At the time of his heroism he had already been in the Marine Corps for 3 YEARS!

"For Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity in Action At the Risk of Life Above and Beyond the Call of Duty"
