CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENTS TO GATHER IN GREEN BAY

"This September, many of our nation's most highly-honored military
veterans will come together in Green Bay for a convention honoring
recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor. Thursday, organizers
unveiled details of the week-long event.

"In the history of the U.S. military, more than 48 million men and
women have served. Out of that, just 3,444 were awarded with the
military's highest honor.

"There are 110 Congressional Medal of Honor recipients still living,
ranging from 57 to 97 years old. Most of them will be in Green Bay
for the convention.

"Each recipient who attends will take part in a jam-packed week with
activities ranging from fishing to school visits. In all, there will
be 22 events during the week. The final event takes place on Lambeau
Field, where all the Medal of Honor recipients will be introduced
during a pre-game ceremony.

"Festivities kick off September 3rd."
