Hall of Heroes - The Pentagon

In sharing the legacy of Medal of Honor recipients with America, a permanent exhibit of 101 dramatic portraits entitled Visions of Valor, presented to the Pentagon by TriWest Healthcare Alliance, opened February 3 at the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes.

Seven Medal of Honor recipients: Gary Littrell, Bob Howard, Brian Thacker, Senator Daniel Inouye, Barney Barnum, Robert Foley and Joe Marm attended the opening ceremonies along with Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England and other high-ranking Department of Defense officials.

"You are a shining light of integrity in a world that has lost its way. Thank you for your sacrifices and service to us all. You will always be remembered with honor and respect."
— Jonathan Zakes

The exhibit provides a rare glimpse of America's most honored heroes - a rapidly diminishing number of men upon whom our nation bestowed the highest award for valor in combat, the Medal of Honor.

"As America's youth searches for heroes, they need to look no further than those who have earned our nation's highest honor," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre Jr. "The character, patriotism and humble selflessness of these gallant men is the real stuff of heroes. These historical photographs represent the enduring legacy of common men who responded with uncommon valor and TriWest is privileged and honored to share this exhibit with America."
