Today’s Medal of Honor Moment for 2 August

The Medal of Honor, courtesy the CMOHS.

Yesterday was a singular day for the Medal, with 5 awards for the same fight on the same day.

Today is similarly so.  Singular.

While there have been several Holders born on 2 August, and several awards issued on 2 August, and 3 awards which covered a period which included 2 August…

There are no Medals of Honor that were awarded for actions on 2 August specifically.

That makes 2 August a rare day, indeed.

A grumpy old Cincinnatus who feeds goats, dogs, cats, ducks, peafowl, a horse, and sundry avians, especially in the winter. From time to time you will see guns. Until such time as the Progressives repeal the 2nd Amendment, everything you see is legal, Federal, State, Local, where I live. Your progressive paradise may have different rules. Don't project them onto me. Federalism still exists, even if it is but a shadow of what the Framers intended.

  1. The last confirmed veteran of the Civil War, Albert Henry Woolson, died August 2, 1956. So yet another small distinction for the day.
