The U.S. military's highest honor. It is awarded to those who show extreme volor and bravery in combat against an enemy, foreign or domestic. It is illegal to own one, inluding the medal, ribbon bar, and rossette, unless you have been awarded one yourself. There are less than 125 living Medal Of Honor recipients today. There are three versions: the Air Force, Navy/Marine Corps., and the oldest, the Army. The first Medal of Honor was awarded to Bernard J. D. Irwin during the Civil War.
The latest Medal of Honor awardee was Jason Dunham, USMC.

*The Congressional Medal of Honor is the US's highest decoration for military personnel. To achieve the Medal of Honor, you pretty much have to display absolute fearlessness & bravery, heroism, and superhuman capability against an enemy of the United States. The MoH has only been achieved by very few, but there will be more in the future.....however, to achieve the Medal of Honor, you have to display the traits that have just been described, and perhaps even more traits and capabilities.
The Medal of Honor is a commendation higher than the Distinguished Service Cross (see DSC).

*A WWII-genre videogame series, spanning different consoles & storylines, created by Steven Spielberg!
"To achieve the Medal of Honor would be an act of God."

"Medal of Honor is a kick-ass game. Call of Duty kicks ass too. ^-^ What both have in common is that they're educational. ^_^ "

A friend who is always willing to jump on a grenade (ugly friend) for you. When partying and you see a hot girl with an ugly friend, this person will always take the ugly friend to help you out.

A medal awarded to soldiers who show great bravery or valor upon the field of battle. It is one of the highest awards given to soldiers, and is similar to the Nazi 'Knight's Cross'.
The army was giving away free Medals of Honor on D-Day.
