Q. What is the Military Hall of Honor? (MHOH)

The Military Hall of Honor's intention is to identify and honor every man and woman, dead or living, that has honorably served (or is serving) in the U.S. Armed Forces. MHOH provides its Registered Members a place to create Honoree records that can be viewed by everyone, completely free!

Veterans, relatives or friends of veterans, genealogists, military historians/researchers, etc. are encouraged to become members and create Honoree Records. Working together, we can create what has never existed before: A single location where information on all those who have served in our country's military can be found and where tribute can be paid to honor their service and sacrifice! We especially want to make this possible for those veterans who are still living and can know of our gratitude.

MHOH believes that its Members will become recognized by others for their important work in achieving this important mission!

Q. Who is responsible for the Military Hall of Honor?

Charles A. Lewis, a veteran that honorably served in the U.S. Army, is the founder of MHOH. With a hobby as a military researcher / historian, he has compiled thousands of biographies of military men and women that are included in MHOH. It was this extensive research that brought to his attention that millions of veterans names are generally unknown and, with the exception of relatives and friends, their service was never acknowledged. His decision to rectify that situation resulted in creation of this virtual Military Hall of Honor. The founder's son, Bryan Lewis, a software programmer, has also made major contributions to the creation of MHOH.

Q. Is the Military Hall of Honor a not-for-profit entity?

The Military Hall of Honor, LLC is not a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. It neither solicits, nor accepts, donations or other funding and it does not charge fees for any services it provides. It is a Limited Liability Company owned by the founder and his family, and the Charles A. Lewis family personally pays all costs of its operation.

Q. How do I search for an Honoree?

You may search as a public user via the Service Member Search link above or search as a Registered Member. MHOH provides a search feature that is both easy and robust. Simply select a Branch of Service, enter your search criteria and click the Search button.

You'll be provided a listing of all Honorees matching your criteria at the bottom of the screen. Locate the Honoree you are seeking and click on their name to open their Honoree Record. To find an Honoree even faster, enter more refined criteria such as first and last name, Rank, etc. The more criteria entered, the narrower the search.

Q. Should I register and become a member? I'm worried about my privacy.

You don't have to register to use MHOH. You can search our database and visit any of the Honoree records without registering. But if you want to ADD anything, including a tribute, to our database, you are required to register so we can keep track of who is adding what. When you register, we require that you use a valid e-mail address in case we need to contact you regarding your submissions. If you don't want your e-mail address to display on your Member Profile page, you can edit your Profile and prevent it from appearing. MHOH will never share your e-mail address or personal information with anyone. If you are interested, you can read our full Privacy Policy by clicking on those words at the bottom of each web page.

Q. How will my e-mail address be used?

Your e-mail address will be required when you register as a Member of our website because we will e-mail you a link to use to activate your MHOH account. The address we keep on file will only be used for two other purposes: (1) to send you your forgotten password, and (2) to send you a message that cannot be accessed within our website. MHOH prefers to do all other messaging between our administrators and MHOH members within the site itself. We will not use your e-mail address to spam you and we will not share this address with anyone. You can elect to share your e-mail address within your public profile. However, by default it will remain hidden from anyone using the site.

Q. How do I become a member of MHOH?

Joining is easy, simply click on the register link above and enter a first and last name, a user name, password, and e-mail address. An e-mail will be sent to you with a link to follow for verification purposes. Now just log in and start entering an Honoree record! Only one member account per person is allowed; multiple accounts will be merged.

Don't forget to write down your user name and password. But, if you should happen to forget either one of them, we have provided a feature in which you can request the information be sent to the email address that you provided when first registering.

Q. What kind of Honoree photographs or graphics may I upload?

All photos or graphics on MHOH must be appropriate and relevant to the Honoree. Members are asked to report any inappropriate images.

Q. Does MHOH sell the data or photos I provide for Honoree records?

No, the data and photos provided for Honoree records are never sold. Everything stored in the MHOH database is used for the purpose of identifying, and honoring, veterans who have honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Q. I've noticed that an Honoree's information is inaccurate, What can I do?

The first thing to do is check your sources. If you're not an immediate family member or friend, you might not be aware of that particular information. That said, the named Creator of the record (the originator of any Honoree record) should be contacted via their e-mail and username link and informed of the specific data believed to be inaccurate.

MHOH limits editorial rights for Honoree Records to Registered Members only. Becoming a member is easy and provides you with the capability to offer your services to others. A community of users interested in honoring those who have honored us will ensure that these records are as accurate as possible.

Q. My uploaded pictures don't look right, what's the problem?

Any image you upload will be proportionally resized to either a height or width of 250 pixels. If your image is much smaller than 250 pixels then it will be enlarged and may look stretched and distorted. To keep a small image from being distorted you can use an image editor to add whitespace to the edge of your image to make it 250 x 250 pixels. If you do this, we recommend centering the image within the added whitespace to keep the image centered.
