New York Medal of Honor Recipients
World War I, II, Korea, Vietnam, WOT


  • Buffalo World War I hero William "Wild Bill" Donovan organized the U.S. Military Intelligence during World War II and became the father of our present-day C.I.A.

  • During World War II's D-DAY landing, the only general officer to land with the troops was Oyster Bay's General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. (the son of  President Theodore Roosevelt).  His Medal of Honor was a posthumous award as he when he died of a heart attack 6 days after the landing.  Previously during World War I Roosevelt had earned both the DSC and the DSM for his heroism and leadership.

  • Native Son Francis Curry of World War II is the subject of a collector's edition G.I. Joe Doll that can still be found in some stores.

  • Roger Donlon of Saugerties was the FIRST Medal of Honor recipient of the Vietnam War, and Bob O'Malley was the first Marine to survive to wear a Vietnam War Medal of Honor.
