Where can I learn about an ancestor's military medal?

If one of your ancestors received a medal for service in war, it could add a new dimension to your research. To gather more information about military medals, see the National Archives Military Awards and Decorations page. You'll learn how to request replacement medals for deceased recipients. The U.S. Army Center of Military History provides a complete list of Medal of Honor Citations from 1863 to 1979. These citations explain why and when the medal was awarded.

If your ancestor received a Purple Heart, go to the Military Order of the Purple Heart for more information. While there is no authoritative, online list of recipients, the organization can help you obtain certain information from military records. E-mail MOPH at info@purpleheart.org for more information.
