Editorial Reviews

The story of the Medal of Honor, the highest U.S. award for valor in combat, is told through personal accounts of bravery and daring. The medal is presented to individuals for service above and beyond the call of duty. Most have been awarded posthumously, yet in this film 13 living recipients tell their stories. This documentary transports audiences to the battlegrounds of Little Round Top, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq.

This film is remarkable in that you are watching, and listening to the stories of people that took unbelievable actions under distress. It doesn't glorify war, and each story is different and powerful. I was left with the feeling that we, as Americans, are blessed to have these people as our fellow citizens. Thanks for making this film... And thanks to the people that earned those medals!

Do not care what your gender or cultural beliefs are and what your views are towards war, military or politics. This DVD is a must that grabs you by the collar and will open your eyes to what sacrifice means. Most of these Medal of Honor awards were given to people that pass you on the street everyday or could be your neighbor, but they chose to act during a difficult moment!

This is not a story of battles, combat, and war; this is a story of bravery, selflessness, and sacrifice. This is not a story about generals or presidents; this is a story about your neighbor or your co-worker. This is not a story of those seeking glory and fame; this is a story of those possessing humble fortitude and quiet valor.

This is a story of people whose names most of us have never heard, but, as fellow Americans, we are all very deeply indebted. My humble thanks to all the brave men and women, who have served and sacrificed when called. And my appreciation to the all the talented people who produced this moving documentary.

This was filled with stories of Incredible courage and humility, From the Civil War up to the present there were pictures and later combat films of the battle scenes. These visual scenes, if not of the award winners heroics, still set the tone for their conflict, The program also made me aware that during the Civil War the award was given with a lower standard of personal risk (sometimes for enlisting in the Army). Since WWI the recipients are awarded the Medal for extraordinary valor; yet most of the award winners said they only did what the situation asked of any member of their unit, There were some little known facts. For example Congress recalled many of the Civil War era Medals on the basis limited personal risk or the fact that this was only to be given to Members of the Armed forces. The recalls included Buffalo Bill Cody because he was a civilian scout in the conflicts with the Plains Indians, The only female award winner Dr. Mary Edwards Walker was a Civil War battlefield surgeon who could not enroll in the Union Army so she work for a civilian firm as a contract physician. Buffalo Bill asked to have his Medal of Honor reinstated and because of his fame and influence it was., Dr. Mary Edwards Walker refused to return hers, won in the horror of field surgery where the most common procedures were amputations of injured limbs. The wounded love her because she saw amputation as the last resort,not the first and fastest treatment. She wore it every remaining day of her life.

Historically great but lacking. The narration of one of the SEALS was on target related to jumping on grenades. What should have been include is the criteria that politics plays in the award. The army records show that the civilian Teddy Roosevelt never charged up San Juan Hill, but was awarded the CMO. And as the SEAL well expressed and implied, many that deserve it get a DSO or Navy Cross instead. My hat goes off to Col. Smedly Butler USMC who tried to return his after Vera Cruz because he didn't earn it..Worst yet. Now Bronze Stars are being given away like bus tickets. One with a combat V, and one without. Intergrity can't be bought.

Military history is a passion for some of us. With each documentary we hope to find more information. The Medal of Honor has a fascinating history and it remains the highest commendation. To those who have served and those still serving, thank you. You have created a history of service that is and of itself, most remarkable.

The interviews are personal and in depth. The narrative and timeline are rather disjointed but the original footage is a positive. This could have been better presented but that is just a technical observation. The information is accurate and detailed. Definitely recommended to those who do not know the history and for those of us that do, perhaps some detail that has been missed in past documentaries.

A history of the conference of the Medal of Honor through history. Sadly today rarely given for someone living, and then so often so late in their life. I believe in heroes and know that some of our most elite soldiers are very deserving but will remain unknown.

This documentary should be required watching by all students before they graduate from high school. It offers the viewer an opportunity to see what war really is, and perhaps even what a real hero is instead of the usual movie, TV, or sports star. The documentary is extremely well done. They wisely stayed quiet and let the recipients of the Medal tell their own personal stories. Excellent.
