The Medal of Honor -- An A.G. Russell Tribute Page

Few stories embody the American spirit like those of Medal of Honor recipients.

A.G. Russell started talking about Heroes in America in the Winter 1997 Catalog of Knives. He received a large number of positive responses to his letter. This page will be a tribute to those 4000 + Americans who have been awarded the Medal of Honor.

It almost seems unfashionable to talk of Honor and Valor in this day and age. For these men it was a way of life. It was that selfless devotion to others in the face of extreme adversity to which we pay tribute here.
