Transcript of Aidyn and Jordan
The medal of honor was awarded to almost 3,500 recipients. There was only one women who received this award , Mary Edwards Walker became the Army's first female surgeon. The official highest U.S. military distinction is simply The Medal of Honor , not the congressional medal of honor. This confusion occurs when the medal is awarded in the name of the congress. The medal of Honor is the least likely medal to be given out.
