MOH Recipients with Other High Awards

Frequently the issue arises regard such titles as "most decorated" or "most highly decorated." In fact, this is a difficult issue to resolve for a number of reasons. First, a military man or woman may be the recipient of MANY awards, qualifying them for the "most" category, when in fact their awards may represent numerous campaigns and NOT acts of valor. Secondly, there is no parameter for quantifying valor awards. With TWO Medals of Honor and the Marine Corps Brevet Medal, Smedley Butler is as close as anyone has come to being a TRIPLE recipient of the Medal of Honor. With the Medal of Honor and SEVEN Distinguished Service Crosses, Eddie Rickenbacker has a record of awards unmatched by anyone. At least 86 Medal of Honor recipients have earned one or more of the military's second tier of valor awards.
