Geocache Description:

This series is to honor the Heroes of the United States Marine Corps who have been awarded the Nation’s highest military honor since its inception.


Established early in the Civil War to "promote efficiency in the Navy", the Medal of Honor rose to prominence in American history and heritage.  Fewer than 3,500 Americans have been awarded Medals of Honor, and today only 81 of them survive.   These heroes are a vanishing breed whose valiant history MUST be preserved for future generations.  That heritage is nurtured and sustained on the ground floor of the Hall of Heroes.
