Medal of Honor Program

On Tuesday, November 12 at 10:30 am, Jerry Perdue will present a program at the Bassett Historical Center about the Congressional Medal of Honor, our nation’s highest award for valor in action against an enemy force engaging in war against the United States.  Of the over 42 million men and women who have served our nation since the Civil War, only 3,449 have been presented our country’s highest military award.  Many of those who have received the Medal of Honor are just ordinary people; yet, by their extraordinary acts of heroism have become larger than life.  Come and hear some fascinating stories about the men and women who have been the Medal of Honor recipients.  This program is free and open to the public and will be held in the Susan L. Adkins Memorial Meeting Room.
