Medal of Honor Garden Dedication

March 24th @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

The National D-Day Memorial has embarked on a new initiative to install a Medal of Honor Garden, paying tribute to the four Medal of Honor recipients from D-Day. 

Join us as we dedicate the Medal of Honor Garden and honor 1st Lt. Jimmie W. Monteith Jr., a son of Virginia and member of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. Killed in action on June 6, 1944, Monteith’s heroism was so apparent that both General Dwight D. Eisenhower and General Omar Bradley personally recommended Monteith posthumously receive the nation’s highest honor for valor in combat.

Maj. Gen. Randal D. Fullhart, Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets Commandant, will deliver the keynote address.
