The Congressional Medal of Honor Society is a not-for-profit organization chartered by the 85th Congress under a legislative act signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on August 14, 1958. Membership is restricted to recipients of the Medal of Honor.
Society members are joined together for the purpose of forming and maintaining friendship among all living recipients of the Medal of Honor and remembrance of posthumous and deceased recipients. They are dedicated to the protection and preservation of the dignity, honor and name of the Medal of Honor; service to others; service to nation, and the promotion of allegiance to the Constitution and Government of the United States. Members act to foster patriotism and to inspire and encourage the youth of America to become worthy citizens.
Society members are regularly called upon to speak to young people in schools, community service organizations, business groups, and others in various forums about moral strength, patriotism, service to others, leadership and good citizenship. In these and other ways they continue to serve their nation during peacetime as they did in war.
The Society's national headquarters is located in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, on the hanger deck of the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. The headquarters consists of the Society's office, museum and archives. The office serves as the administrative center of the Society. It maintains contact with and between members through written correspondence and electronic communications, and by publication of newsletters and bulletins. The office staff also responds to inquiries and requests for educational and other information pertaining to the Medal of Honor and its recipients.
By these and other activities, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society shares the history of the Medal of Honor. It serves its own members and the nation, and it ensures that information will be available to educate future generations about our nation's highest award for bravery and the acts of those to whom it has been awarded.
