As part of the National Archives honoring the 150th anniversary of the Medal of Honor Lieutenant General Nicholas Kehoe (Ret.) moderated a discussion with Medal of Honor recipients Harvey C. “Barney” Barnum, Jr., and Robert Foley about their experiences. They responded to questions from members of the audience.

The program opened with a video clip from the DVD accompanying the book of Medal of Honor: Portraits of Valor Beyond the Call of Duty featuring reflections of medal recipients.

For 150 years, the Medal of Honor has been America’s symbol that soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and coast guardsmen have the esteem of their fellow countrymen for deeds on the battlefield that are far above and beyond the call of duty. It has been awarded fewer than 3,500 times. December 2011 marked the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s creation of the Medal of Honor. close
