We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.

What started as a mission to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day has grown to include more than just our military heroes and more than just the one holiday. Carry The Load works to bring all Americans together to participate in honoring our nation’s heroes every day.

Colonel (IL) J.N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), founder of the Pritzker Military Library, assembled a major collection of books and related materials on military history, with a particular focus on the concept of the Citizen Soldier in America. Today, building upon that foundation through the generosity of private donors, the Pritzker Military Library has become a non-partisan research library that attempts to increase the public understanding of military history and the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served. The library displays Medal of Honor as one of their permanent display Gallery Exhibitions.

This exhibition includes the original presentation Medal of Honor and Citation earned by Hershel "Woody" Williams on Iwo Jima during World War II, along with a special commemorative tapestry.

The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation was founded by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society which consists exclusively of the living Medal of Honor recipients. The Foundation is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit with Tax ID #25-1828488.

The Foundation, in conjunction with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, must reach out to the citizens of America, particularly its youth, to promote an awareness of what the Medal of Honor represents and how ordinary Americans through courage, sacrifice, selfless service and patriotism can challenge fate and change the course of history.

There are no better ambassadors to take this message to the American people than the Medal of Honor recipients themselves who embody these values through their incredible acts of bravery. The work of the Foundation is aimed at promoting awareness of what America’s highest military award for valor in combat represents.
