The majority of my work over the last two decades has been obtaining and transcribing the citations for military awards above the Bronze Star. To date I have identified what I believe to be ALL awards of the Medal of Honor and service crosses, and digitized the citations for all Medal of Honor, Navy Cross and Air Force Cross awards, and more than 10,500 of the 13,500 Distinguished Service Crosses. This enables me to provide a complete compilation of the top two military awards.

Additionally, I have compiled indexes for more than 105,000 of an estimated 130,000 Silver Star awards in history, with digitized full -text citations for more than 30,000 Silver Stars including the citations for all Silver Star awards to U.S. Marines and Coast Guard, as well as for nearly all Silver Stars awarded to members of the Navy since World War II (as well as a comprehensive database of WWII Navy Awards).

To understand what awards are compiled in each book, click on the book itself for a more detailed description on Amazon.com. To preview the format that I utilize for nearly all my citation books, review the information at the bottom of this page. Most citation books include detailed appendixes with helpful analysis of the awards by such criteria as: Rank, Specialty, Company, etc.

United States Military Heroes Volumes
 

The majority of my four dozen books currently in print are a part of a collection I call "United States Military Heroes". Some of them are reflected in the image at right although there are others such as the three volumes of Military Academy graduates, Navy Medical and Hospital Corps, and unit compilations that can be found under the "Unit-MOS Books" link. Additional such volumes are planned for production as well.

Each of these books is a large, 8 /12 x 11" volume, usually with 500+ pages, and each volume includes "notes" pages at the end for you to add personal notes you may want to include. Most reflect the citations for individual award recipients including personal data and in many cases, notes of interest and/or a photo. They are presented in the following format:

Usually the first volume in each set (branch or award) begins with historical information including history of the military awards system, known as "The Pyramid of Honor", as well as the historical background for the awards represented in that volume, and a table showing the number of awards.

Below is a screenshot from the Army Medal of Honor book that illustrates the basic format I follow for the citations and personal information.

MOH Citation


APPENDIXES

Often the last volume in each set (branch or award), as well as the stand-alone volumes, conclud with a series of appendixes that analyze the awards by such categories as rank, unit, MOS, academy, and more. These appendixes provide a wealth of information that cannot be found in other compilations of award citations. Further, major volumes such as the first set in the Medal of Honor books include "The Book of Leadership" that identifies the leadership of the branch of service including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Branch secretaries/commandant, and the senior enlisted leader. The "Table of Generals/Admirals" also identifies flag officers with basic information including their identified awards. Other appendixes included in some of these volumes are: Table of Navy/Marine Corps/Army/Air Force Air ACES, Prisoners of War, and more.

Below are screenshots of some of the history/appendix pages (the small images below are thumbnails - when you click on them a larger image opens. Hit your back arrow to return to this page.) Take a little time to view some of these samples of the "Bonus Information" you will find in most of my books.
