Here is one we would like to recognize:

Marine Captain Joseph McCarthy, a WWII Medal Of Honor recipient.

On February 21, 1945 Captain Joseph J. McCarthy earned the Medal of

Honor on Iwo Jima, while leading an assault team across exposed ground to

wipe out positions holding up the advancement of his company. The Medal

was presented by President Harry S, Truman in ceremonies at the White

House, October 5, 1945. Here is his citation:

Here are a couple of links that are great for those that want further understanding and wish to support those that have earned this great honor.

We would also like to recognize the only female Medal of Honor recipient, Mary Edwards Walker, a Civil War surgeon. Click here for more information.
