♫ O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? ♪
♪ And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, ♫
♫ Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. ♪
♪ Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave! ♫

March 25th was National Medal of Honor Day! Wishing a great thanks to those who have earned a medal in the armed services! The legacy lives on and on. . .
A Brief History:
Thank You: A special day to honor the American soldiers, sailors, marines, or any other department–a Medal of Honor. A Medal of Honor (MOH) is the United States Armed Forces’ highest military decoration when it is awarded . I want to take the time to thank those who have fought for the American freedom. this fine country is based on a theory and a constitution. It is with the military that makes that theory work! And those outstanding officials that earned a Medal of Honor, I am absolutely flabbergasted to say “thank you”!
Origination: The Medal of Honor was created in 1861, and is is the highest military award for valor in the United States. The Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton presented the first ever Medals of Honor in n March 25, 1863 to 6 Army members of the “Andrews Raiders,” for their volunteering and participation during an American Civil War raid in the month of April of the year 1862.
Traditions: Taking a hat off for the many Americans who over the years have served our Armed Forces in any way, shape or form and the displaying multiple flags.
Different Variations: There are 3 versions of the Medal of Honor:
- Navy (The Marine Corps & Coast Guard receive the Navy version)
- Air Force
Observed: In 1990, U.S. Congress designated March 25th of every year as National Medal of Honor Day.
