Silver Star Recipients Added to Valor Site

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25, 2012 – Officials have added the names of those who have received Silver Star awards to a website listing recipients of the nation’s highest awards for valor.

The site launched in July with the names of those who have received the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award for valor, since Sept. 11, 2001.

On Aug. 1, officials added the names of those who have received the Distinguished Service Cross, the Navy Cross or the Air Force Cross – the nation’s second-highest valor awards.

Now, the site also lists those who have received the Silver Star.

The site -- at http://valor.defense.gov -- is designed to raise awareness of service members’ heroism and to help in deterring those who falsely claim military honors, officials said.
