Medal of Honor

Howard Consulting Group is working Capitol Hill on behalf of the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation, which wants to build a facility to honor recipients of the nation’s highest military decoration.

Washington-based HCG will push for appropriations, tackle land use issues and educate Members of Congress about plans to construct the National Medal of Honor Museum at Patriots Point, which is alongside Charleston Harbor in South Carolina.

The Foundation on March 26 announced that Joe Daniels, a veteran of the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York, would become its CEO on April 1.

Daniels spent 11 years working on the planning, construction and programming of the New York memorial located at the site of the World Trade Center.

Created in 1961, the Medal of Honor has been awarded to 3,517 soldiers, sailors and airmen.
