There is a big difference between the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congressional_Gold_Medal, usually referred to as the Congressional Gold Medal, and the Medal of Honor – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medal_of_Honor.
From the first link (the Gold Medal):
Congressional Gold Medal
In some cases, the Congressional Gold Medal is given to a group of individuals whereas the Medal of Honor is only given to individuals even if several people in a group are awarded it for a specific action. My friend, Aldee Miller – Tuskegee Airmen Remembered received it for being a Tuskegee Airman.
I bring this topic up because I saw a blogger mention a while back the Medal of Honor in reference to an individual. The person is not listed on the Wikipedia Medal of Honor list – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Medal_of_Honor_recipients above or on the Congressional Medal of Honor website – http://www.cmohs.org/. Here’s the list of Congressional Gold Medal honorees – https://history.house.gov/Institution/Gold-Medal/Gold-Medal-Recipients/ – note: for groups, it doesn’t list the names of individuals although you can usually research and figure out the names of the recipients from the group.
