Thirty-nine District service members have received the Medal of Honor and 18 more Medal of Honor awardees were born in the District of Columbia but moved and have their service credited to another state. For a list of District Medal of Honor awardees, go to: http://www.homeofheroes.com/moh/states/y_dc.html. Among the District's Medal of Honor awardees are:
  • Daniel Adams Butterfield who received the Medal of Honor during the Civil War.  During the Penninsula campaign he also composed the song "Taps".

  • Washington, DC born Eugene Fluckey who recveived the Medal of Honor (as well as FOUR Navy Crosses) during World War II for his intrepid command of the submarine USS Barb.  In addition to his Medal of Honor action, "Lucky Fluckey" landed an impromptu mission to destroy a train, the ONLY ground combat action on Japanese soil during World War II.   The battleflag of the Barb is the only one to proudly display a TRAIN among the vessels "sunk", on its battleflag.

Outside the District of Columbia Council Chambers is a poster on the wartime service of District residents.  It includes information on the five District service members killed in Iraq and the three killed in Afghanistan. The poster is reprinted below.

Yet without any right to self-government, including full representation in our national legislature, these thousands of District residents had no say in whether they were sent to war and offered their lives for their their country and no say in what benefits are due them because of their service.  They had in the fullest sense shouldered all the responsiblities of citizenship, but received few, if any of the benefits.
