Gold Medal Ceremony
On Thursday, October 22, 2015, the United States Congress presented the Monuments Men and women, of all fourteen nations, with the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian honor bestowed by the United States.
The Monuments Men Foundation honors the legacy of the men and women who served in the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives section, known as the "Monuments Men," and their unprecedented and heroic work protecting and safeguarding civilization's most important artistic and cultural treasures from armed conflict during World War II. Raising public awareness is essential to the Foundation's mission.
