The Air Force has released a new website dedicated to more than 60 Airmen who have received the Medal of Honor, which is the highest military award for valor that can be bestowed upon a service member. The first medal received by an Airman was awarded to Capt. Edward V. Rickenbacker for aerial combat in 1918. The Air Force-designed Medal of Honor was created on April 14, 1965.
