Each year, recipients of the Medal of Honor – our nation’s highest award for wartime acts of valor – reach out across the nation to find unsung citizen heroes. The Citizen Honors program recognizes ordinary Americans who have gone above and beyond for their fellow man in some extraordinary way, by risking their life in a single grave situation, or through a lifetime of service to others.In establishing the Citizen Honors program, the living recipients seek to find hometown American heroes who, through their actions, have demonstrated the very traits that are emblematic of the Medal of Honor: courage, sacrifice, selflessness and patriotism.
