MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENTS

Established in 1861 by Abraham Lincoln as the Medal of Honor, awarding a medal of honor to all who shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry in action and other soldier-like qualities.
The Medal of Honor was created during the American Civil War and is the highest military decoration presented by the United States government to a member of its armed forces. The recipients must have distinguished themselves at the risk of their own life above and beyond the call of duty in action against an enemy of the United States. Due to the nature of this medal, it is commonly presented posthumously.
There were no Hotel 2/5 Medal of Honor recipients during the Vietnam War.
