    19 Americans who were awarded multiple CMHs.

    These guys are the real heroes of America. We need to get back to remember who we are as Americans. Not who we are as Democrats or Republicans or liberals or conservatives.

    We need to get back to remembering who we are...

    These men remind us.

    Nineteen servicemen have been awarded the Medal of Honor twice. Fourteen have been awarded the medal for two separate events. The U.S. Navy is the most awarded branch with eight sailors, some receiving the award not for combat heroism but life-saving actions. Added to that, the Medal of Honor was initially confined to only enlisted Navy sailors and U.S. Marines; U.S. Army officers were granted eligibility in 1863, and then it was open to everyone in the military. The most recent double Medal of Honor recipient earned the medal almost exactly 100 years ago in 1918 during World War I.

    By the way. Go Navy!

    Things have been quiet on the World Stage for some time and I think we tend to forget the real heroes!

    “The Fighting Quaker,” which was a nickname for the Pennsylvania native, wasn’t afraid to speak his mind, and Butler wrote several short stories in “War is a Racket” discussing how those in power profit from war.

    He sounds like a "conspiracy theorist".
    Power always thinks it has a great soul, and vast views, beyond the comprehension of the weak. And that it is doing God's service when it is violating all His laws.
    --John Adams

    Back then, there was no real standard for the award of the Medal. Many were awarded the Medal for actions that would not even be considered today.
    “If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
