Hall of Heroes Paintings Honor USMC Medal of Honor and Navy Cross Recipients

The Hall of Heroes is a one-of-a-kind collection of paintings commissioned by the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation that honors Medal of Honor (MOH) and Navy Cross recipients. Learn about the Marines who have helped preserve our Nation’s freedom. Under each painting is a gold-framed citation that describes the action that resulted in the award of the MOH or the Navy Cross.
