Honoring America's Heroes
The City of Gainesville, Texas Welcomes Medal of Honor Recipients
The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. This honor is generally presented to the recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress. In 2001 Gainesville, Texas became the only city in America to host our nation’s highest decorated hero’s annually to promote patriotism and celebrate the heroism of the recipients.
