Backstory and Context
One of the most popular aspects of the museum is the Medal of Honor Park, which pays tribute to all United States Air Force Medal of Honor Recipients. The Medal of Honor is the highest honor member of the US military can receive. In addition to information about each recipient, museum staff has planted trees as a living tribute to each recipient.
