Everyday Heroes don't always speak about the sacrifices they've made for others. At the Medal of Honor Museum, you can see the plaques of the brave men and women who were awarded the highest and most-prestigious personal military decoration for their service – The Medal of Honor.
We're getting ready to walk into the Medal of Honor [Museum]. Up on the glass plaques, you can see the [names of the] 3,500-plus men and women who have earned the Medal of Honor. We're still in the process of adding the new names. You can see the Medal of Honors [displayed here]. We have one for the Army and one for the Air Force. The Navy administers two, one for the sailors [in the] Navy and then one for the Marines. In my talks with the Medal of Honor [recipients], you'll never hear them refer to themselves as heroes. They'll say the heroes are the men and women who died on the battlefield. They wear that medal in the honor of those who gave their lives.
