The Congressional Medal of Honor Society of the United States of America is perhaps the “most exclusive organization” in our country…it is certainly one of the most unique. Its small membership includes men of all races, social classes and economic levels. They range in stature from 5’2″ to 6’7″, in age from 27 to 96, and they live in all areas of our Country. No amount of money, power or influence can buy one’s rite of passage to this exclusive circle, and unlike almost any other organization, this group’s members hope that there will be no more inductees. Beyond this attitude towards recruitment, about all they have in common is a passionate love for the United States of America and the distinct honor of wearing our Nation’s highest award for military valor, the Medal of Honor.
