President Barack Obama meets with recipients at the National Medal of Honor Day ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns on March 25, 2009

There are currently 79 living recipients of the Medal of Honor. It is the United States military's highest decoration. The Medal of Honor is given to any member of the United States armed forces who distinguishes himself "conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States."[1]

Of the 79 living recipients 11 earned their Medals of Honor in World War II. 11 received them for actions in the Korean War. 54 were earned in the Vietnam War. Three were in the War in Afghanistan. Five earned their medal while serving in the U.S. Air Force. 51 were in the U.S. Army. 16 were in the U.S. Marine Corps. 7 were in the U.S. Navy. The oldest recipient is Robert D. Maxwell. He is 93. The youngest is Dakota Meyer. He is 26. Only one medal holder is still on active duty in the U.S. military. He is War in Afghanistan soldier Leroy Petry. Among the recipients is former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey. Three are retired generals: Patrick Henry Brady and Robert F. Foley of the Army and James E. Livingston of the Marine Corps.
