I would hasten to point out that, established by President John F. Kennedy in 1963, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the Nation’s highest civilian honor. It is awarded by the President of the United States.
The Medal of Honor is awarded by the POTUS “in the name of the United States Congress” and is the United States government’s highest and most-prestigious military decoration that may be awarded to recognize American soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, Space Force guardians, and coast guardsmen who have distinguished themselves by acts of valor. It is sometimes referred to as the “Congressional Medal Of Honor”.
Let us not blur the distinction between them, please.
