Medal of Honor Book

$50.00

Amazing collection of moving black-and-white photographs of recipients of the Medal of Honor that displays not the glory of war, but the underlying spirit and humanity of true heroism. Forty-eight portraits are combined with comments, observations, and statements from the recipients of America’s highest military honor. This compilation of words and pictures of men who served in the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Army, and Marine Corps is both humbling and poignant. Each recipient’s full official citation is included in the appendix.

This book has been autographed by our recent Medal of Honor recipients who have attended our 9/11 Patriot Day Memorial events.

Medal of Honor, Revised & Updated Third Edition: Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty

Eight veterans from the war in Afghanistan have been awarded our nation’s highest honor for valor in combat since the publication of the third edition of Medal of Honor, including Edward C. Byers, Jr., the newest living recipient and a member of Navy SEAL Team Six, and Clint Romesha, author of the New York Times bestselling Red Platoon. And nearly 50 years after their service, four Vietnam veterans have also since received the recognition they so richly deserve. Now, these men rightly take their place in the pages of this revised and updated edition.

Included here are 156 Medal of Honor recipients, captured with a contemporary portrait by award-winning photographer Nick Del Calzo and profiled in moving text by National Book Award nominee Peter Collier. The men in the book fought in conflicts from World War II to Afghanistan, served in every branch of the armed services, and represent a cross-section as diverse as America itself. This is their ultimate record.
