Medal of Honor

The highest military honor of all is the Congressional Medal of Honor, which is awarded for extraordinary bravery above and beyond the call of duty. Finding a tombstone with a Medal of Honor designation is another of those treasure finds in a cemetery that are a thrill, especially to military historians; it is also a reminder to all Americans of the height of valor that any ordinary citizen can attain.
