      Today the United States marks Medal of Honor Day, commemorating the heroism and selflessness of awardees.

      The nation first celebrated the holiday on March 25, 1991 under the leadership of President George W. Bush.

      The date, March 25, was chosen in remembrance of the first six recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor. These men were awarded on March 25, 1863 for actions performed during the famed Great Locomotive Chase.

      Nationwide, groups and individuals paused to remember the 3,516 Medal of Honor recipients who have served our nation well. Of this total, 65 awardees are alive today.

      The Medal of Honor signifies heroism, but also sacrifice. Let us remember the hard realities and the costs of war. And let us never forget those who gave everything they had so that we can enjoy what we have today.
