Recognizing The Heroes All Around Us


Sometimes, heroes are born in a single moment. Sometimes, a person becomes a hero thanks to months or years of actions and service.

Help the heroes in your life get the recognition they deserve by nominating him or her for the Citizen Service Before Self Honors, presented to ordinary U.S. citizens by members of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society in conjunction with National Medal of Honor Day near the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.

If you’re involved in Scouting, then you’re surrounded by adults and youth who devote countless hours of their time serving the interests of others. Click here to nominate one of them for this prestigious honor.
