Medal of Honor
   "The Medal of Honor is the highest award that can be bestowed by the American Government. It corresponds to the British V.C., and is given to Americans only—and for the performance against the enemy of some act of distinguished personal bravery and self-sacrifice, so conspicuous and so above and beyond the call of duty that no one could justly blame anybody for leaving it undone."
The Stars and Stripes - Friday, May 16, 1919
