The Medal of Honor, America’s highest military award for valor, has been bestowed upon 3,505* individuals in military service since the Civil War. Today, there are only 71 living Recipients of the Medal of Honor. Chartered in 1999 by Medal of Honor Recipients, the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting American values and the qualities of courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity, and commitment through increased awareness, education, ethical behavior, and example.

This event is a call to action for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation in supporting their 20-20-20 Campaign with a goal of raising $20 Million by the end of 2020. This capital fund has been designed to generate the Foundation’s ability to provide support to the Medal of Honor Society, the Recipients and their programs. Ameristrong is supporting the campaign by stewarding a media campaign for the Foundation that will bring exposure to the Medal of Honor and encourage direct donations to the Foundation. Your participation in this media campaign will help be a donation accelerator for the Foundation. The power of many is greater than the voice of one.

Please join the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation in partnership with Ameristrong, in honoring our nation’s hero.
