A busy day for the Medal, is 3 October. 10 Medals from the Civil War, 3 Medal holders, 5 Medals in a unique twist during WWI, a tough Marine aviator in WWII, and the two Medals that are thus far the modern embodiment of the Leave No Man Behind philosophy, Shughart and Gordon in Mogadishu.
Update: And now two Medals for Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Ty Carter and Sergeant First Class Romesha at COP Keating. Ironic note: I originally created this post on the exact.same.day. Staff Sergeant Carter and Sergeant First Class Romesha were earning their Medals.
For you history buffs, John still updates The Castle with the story behind the Medals of Honor earned on each day of the calendar. Some days are harder to read than others.
