Medal of Honor

The Medal of Honor has been awarded to 2405 Army personnel. 746 to Navy…297 to Marine Corps…17 to Air Force…and 1 to Coast Guard.

The Medal of Honor is often mistakenly referred to as the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Only four Medals of Honor have been awarded for the Iraq War and only two for the Afghanistan War. Meanwhile the officer corps are awarded medals for courageous restraint and other leadership skills. Has it always been this way?
