The story of the Medal of Honor — the highest U.S. award for valor in combat — is told through personal accounts of bravery and daring, dating from its inception in the Civil War through the war in Iraq today. Presented to individuals for "service above and beyond the call of duty," most have been awarded posthumously, yet in this film thirteen living recipients tell their inconceivable stories. Audiences are transported to the battlegrounds of Little Round Top, World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. MEDAL OF HONOR is a film about finding courage and succeeding against overwhelming odds.
