Medal of Honor

What drives a person to perform an act of courage so extraordinary that it can only be recognised with America's highest award - the Medal of Honor? This film recounts the personal sacrifices of a chosen few whose courage inspired a nation. Their stories are so personal, so unforgettable, they transcend borders to touch the lives of anyone who has recoiled at the horrors of war.
