Medal of Honor Recipients World War II


Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • Where can I find an inspiring story of courage as a POW?
  • What is involved in a desperate charge?
  • Where can I find stories of valor in the air?


Citations for soldiers awarded the Medal of Honor for service during the World War II. Citations about a paragraph long and will always include why the soldier or sailor received the medal. Dates of birth and unit information are usually included.

Almost any of these citations will produce enough fodder for a short story, or back story for a character or character relative.
