Brian Thacker “Medal of Honor”
November 12th, 2006
Of the 39 million men and women who have served in the U.S. military since the Civil War, some 34-hundred have so distinguished themselves on the battlefield that they were presented with the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor.
More than a hundred living recipients are honored in a book first published to great acclaim in 2003. Now there’s a new edition that includes a new foreword, new portraits, and a multimedia DVD. It is also the only book sponsored and endorsed by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation.
We spoke with retired Air Force General Nicholas Kehoe, as well as with former Army First Lt. Brian Thacker, who was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1973.
