Eight Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients will reflect on the leadership lessons learned and techniques that they have applied in their life as American soldiers.
To recognize the degrees of service to our country, Congress established the Pyramid of Honor in 1918.  The medals on the Pyramid are ranked with increasing importance, starting with The Purple Heart, The Bronze Star, The Distinguished Flying Cross, The Silver Star, The Distinguished Service Medal, The Air Force Cross, The Distinguished Service Cross and The Navy Cross.  At the top of the Pyramid is The Medal of Honor - the greatest tribute for individual acts of valor and self-sacrifice.
