The first Medal of Honor was awarded in 1862. In the storied history of the highest military award for valor, over 3,500 Americans have worn the medal.
Our guest today is John Falkenbury of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, and through the society's outreach, education, and history initiatives, the Medal of Honor recipients continue their service across our Nation.
This is a history lesson, and a great conversation about SERVICE BEFORE SELF on PICK UP THE SIX PODCAST.
