Those words are exemplified in the men and women who are included in this Military Hall of Honor.
Every American owes a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have unselfishly served in the military; starting with the Continental Army in 1775 and continuing to today's U.S. Armed Forces.
Without their service and sacrifices, America would not have all the rights and privileges that we enjoy - and take for granted - every day. It is also true that many other countries around the world would not have their current freedoms . . . were it not for the American blood that has been shed on their behalf!
The founders of MHOH wholeheartedly believe what is written above; that is why MHOH was created. Like you, we want to honor the men and women who have kept our country free. But how can you do that? How do you know who served? And how can you let them and/or their family and friends know how much you appreciate their service and/or sacrifice - not just on Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, or during National Military Appreciation Month . . . but everyday?
The Military Hall of Honor provides answers to those questions . . . and offers solutions. And, it does so without any cost to its members or visitors. Our goal is to provide records on every man or woman who has honorably served, or is serving, in the military of the United States, so they may be honored. We also want you to know more about them; their hopes and dreams, their sense of duty, their selfless sacrifices on behalf of those fighting beside them.
We invite you, our fellow patriots, to join us in making this Military Hall of Honor unlike anything that has existed before. Help us to create records and provide information on these unsung heroes so that all of America may know about them, and pay tribute to them. And as you regularly visit this virtual hall of honor, be prepared to have a lump in your throat and tears in your eyes, because the stories are powerful!
The Military Hall of Honor
"A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers."
John F. Kennedy
"God of our fathers, who by land and sea has ever led us to victory, please continue your inspiring guidance in this the greatest of all conflicts.
Strengthen my soul so that the weakening instinct of self-preservation, which besets all of us in battle, shall not blind me to my duty to my own manhood, to the glory of my calling, and to my responsibility to my fellow soldiers.
Grant to our armed forces that disciplined valor and mutual confidence which insures success in war.
Let me not mourn for the men who have died fighting, but rather let me be glad that such heroes have lived.
If it be my lot to die, let me do so with courage and honor in a manner which will bring the greatest harm to the enemy, and please, oh Lord, protect and guide those I shall leave behind.
Give us the victory, Lord."
General George S. Patton
