William H. Johnston was a drummer boy in a Company D of the 3rd Vermont Infantry. His service during the Seven Days retreat in the Peninsula campaign was exemplary. He was the only drummer in his division to come away with his instrument, during a general rout. His superiors considered this a meritorious feat, when fellow soldiers had thrown away their guns
Medal of Honor recipients show courage just by joining the Armed Forces, they know going in that they could be risking their lives, and yet they do it any way
Medal of Honor recipients show plenty of Valor. For example, George W. Bielger ran into battle with few people, against over 300 enemy soldiers. The chances of survival are very slim, yet he went into battle anyway, that's valor.
Any recipient shows patriotism. The fact that they volunteer to do something such as fight in the armed forces, or in Mary E. Walker's case, heal others in the middle of a battle field. when people like Willie Johnston dream their whole lives to do something like that for their country.
As a important trait, every Medal of Honor recipient must have this. To have their beliefs, and respect for those things, this could be the most important trait of them, though all have their importance.
The valor, patriotism, courage, and honor are such strong traits for one to have, and the fact that these soldiers all show these traits, so strongly is amazing.
