2023 Medal of Honor Convention
The 2023 Medal of Honor Medal of Honor Convention has come to a close, and we are reflecting on the many opportunities the Medal of Honor Recipients had to connect…
Thank you to The Olde School Blazer Company for gifting the Medal of Honor Recipients blazers in the newly designed Congressional Medal of Honor Society Tartan. The Recipients wore their new blazers during the Patriot Award Gala at this year’s Medal of Honor Convention. The Congressional Medal of Honor Society is excited to partner with The Olde School Blazer Company as they support the Society with sales of their new tartan line.

A deep-rooted gratitude for those who serve this great nation is a core value for us and in fact is one of the founding principles of The Olde School Blazer Company. Working with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to design the tartan and develop their Tartan Uniform Program is a privilege as it allows us to demonstrate our appreciation and admiration not only for the great heroism and service in the past, but also for The Society’s ongoing outreach missions.
The Congressional Medal of Honor Society Tartan was designed by the Olde School Blazer Company to honor and recognize the service and sacrifice of America’s greatest heroes, the Recipients of the Medal of Honor. The three gold (yellow) lines in the design are intended to represent the unique designs presented by each service; the thinner lines representing the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force medals and the wider gold line denoting the Department of the Navy and its three constituent services. Red is intended to represent sacrifice for which the Medal of Honor is awarded. The light blue of this tartan is intended to denote the valor of each Recipient, and the starred blue ribbon upon which each Medal hangs.
The Olde School Blazer Company creates and delivers to the consumer high quality affinity treasures that represent and communicate the wearer’s passionately held traditions, history, and values. Click for more information on The Congressional Medal of Honor Societies’ Tartan Programs.
