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…
During the recent Medal of Honor Convention, Society members convened to conduct essential organizational business, culminating in the election of fellow recipients to serve on the 2024-2026 Board of Directors. The Congressional Medal of Honor Society stands as the nation’s foremost institution dedicated to the Medal of Honor, and its Board of Directors is pivotal in guiding the Society’s mission.
The Board’s duties are comprehensive, encompassing the stewardship of the Medal of Honor’s reputation, the support of its Recipients, and the promotion of the values embodied by the Medal. With a commitment to both the immediate needs and the enduring vision of the Society, the Board ensures the institution’s operations are managed with integrity and foresight.
Our vision for the Society is unwavering: to secure its longevity through robust governance, fiscal responsibility, and an unwavering commitment to our mission.
We would like to give a warm welcome to the Recipients joining the board for the first time as well as a thank you to those Recipients returning for another term.
