For an inspiring perspective on history, plan a visit to the new National Medal of Honor Heritage Center.  Spending just an hour or two here could positively impact your family for a lifetime with the values demonstrated by Medal of Honor recipients - patriotism, citizenship, courage, integrity, sacrifice, and commitment.   Chattanooga is where our nation’s highest military award for valor was first presented for actions during the Civil War.  The National Medal of Honor Heritage Center is an ideal place to start your tour of important historical sites in the area, and it’s also a worthwhile add-on when you’re visiting the Tennessee Aquarium next door on the Chattanooga downtown riverfront.
