About this title

Synopsis:

Were these thirty-four U.S. Marines so “ordinary” that their Congressional Medal of Honor actions earned little notice in newspapers? One hundred eight-one U.S. Marines earned our nation’s highest award for valor, in WWII, Korean, and Vietnam battles. Having put themselves in harm’s way on behalf of their fellows, their Corps, and their nation, memorials and tributes can be found in cities, towns, parks and plazas across the states for the majority of the recipients from the three wars. But for thirty-four of these brave men, as inspiring as their stories might be, more than forty to sixty years passed without much public notice of their lives and heroism. They rose above natural fear in moments of extreme peril and acted honorably, yet, they seemed hardly remembered by anyone in their hometowns. The backgrounds from which they had come, the personal characteristics they possessed, and who they were as men is largely unknown to the public. The Search For The Forgotten Thirty-Four provides what information was learned about them from archival investigation, heralds their heroic actions, and chronicles the efforts of family, friends, comrades, and hometown historians to bring proper recognition to their local heroes. Remembering such bravery can inspire generations.
