Portrait collection a dramatic tribute to Medal of Honor recipients
As part the Medal of Honor Convention festivities being held in Charleston this week, portraits of 62 Medal of Honor recipients will be exhibited at The Citadel from Sept. 30 through Dec. 8.
The “Visions of Valor” portrait collection features dramatic black-and-white photographs of military members who have earned the highest honor for helping save the lives of their comrades and an essay about their courage.
“In the hallowed halls of The Citadel, walked by our nation’s future heroes, will stand the memory of the past’s bravest men, all of whom served our nation in its times of greatest need,” said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. “The collection is a tribute to those who have earned our highest honor for valor in the face of the enemy.”
The portrait collection is courtesy of TriWest Healthcare Alliance—a Department of Defense contractor administering healthcare benefits to military members and their families in TRICARE’s 21-state West Region.
