After many years of research into the life of World War II Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Homer L. Wise, we gathered a great deal of resource materials about Medal of Honor recipients and news on efforts of various memorial committees, authors and videographers across our nation who are preserving the history of these heroes.
There are many great websites on the Internet dedicated to these Medal of Honor recipients but we noticed that there wasn’t a general news website or newsfeed that aggregated current news stories in one place.
We decided to create this website to serve that need.
We wish these extraordinary men, whose “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States” will never be forgotten.
Please enjoy this website and news source.
If you wish to contact us, with books, videos, and/or news suggestions and sources to add to Medal of Honor News please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will make every effort to review your submission in a timely manner.
