Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga, the National Medal of Honor Heritage Center is dedicated to connecting people with the meaning and history of the Medal of Honor. The Heritage Center serves as an engaging storyteller and shares the real-life experiences of Medal of Honor recipients on their infamous day when they demonstrated extraordinary heroism under the most difficult circumstances. Each of these amazing, inspiring and, all too often, heart-breaking stories define the meaning of valor and the virtue of putting service over self. Every recipient has a narrative that is relevant to what we do – whether it be on a battlefield, in the classroom or board room and in everyday life. They also provide the ideal role models to teach future generations about six character traits that embody their gallantry – Patriotism, Citizenship, Courage, Integrity, Sacrifice and Commitment.
