ARLINGTON, Va. – The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation has unveiled its new website, www.themedalofhonor.com, featuring dynamic content and compelling video designed to educate Americans about the Medal of Honor and inspire all citizens to understand that, like the 77 living heroes who have earned the Medal, they can make a difference in the lives of others.
“Our website has always been an authoritative source for information, photos and videos on the Medal of Honor, the men who wear the Medal, and our character development, citizen recognition and scholarship programs,” said Ron Rand, Foundation president and CEO. “But our new website is more user-friendly and engaging for visitors of all ages. With its mobile-friendly applications, now everyone can easily view the inspiring stories of America’s truest heroes and the American citizens they recognize for extraordinary courage and service, wherever they are and whenever they want to view them.”
“This vibrant new website proudly portrays the Medal, the Recipients and the Foundation’s programs,” said Tom Kelley, Medal of Honor Recipient and president of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. “It will help us educate millions more Americans about the values embodied in the Medal, like courage, integrity, selfless service and patriotism.”
The new website has dedicated sections on the Medal of Honor and its Recipients including a searchable Living Histories page featuring the video stories of more than 120 Recipients. The Foundation’s Character Development Program also has its own section, where the entire curriculum, which the Foundation has introduced in 40 states, is downloadable free of charge.
Since 2008, America’s Medal of Honor Recipients have presented Citizen Honors Awards to deserving local heroes who distinguished themselves through acts of extraordinary courage and selfless service. The new website features a section on Citizen Honors Awards where visitors can watch videos of past honorees and easily nominate local heroes for recognition.
The website also allows visitors to easily order Foundation books, Medal of Honor: Portraits of Valor andChoosing Courage: Inspiring True Stories of what it Means to be a Hero. – USNewswire
