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.
