National Medal of Honor Day is March 25th, 2012
The Medal of Honor is the highest award for bravery that can be given to any individual in the United States of America. The deed of the person must be proved by incontestable evidence of at least two eye witnesses; it must be so outstanding that it clearly distinguishes his or her gallantry beyond the call of duty from lesser forms of bravery; it must involve the risk of his or her own life; and it must be the type of deed which, if he or she had not done it, would not subject him or her to any justified criticism.
Evergreen Washelli is proud to have in our care several Medal of Honor Recipients. We invite you to discover more about the lives and service of each brave soldier.
