Summary
This date was chosen because the first Medal of Honor was presented on March 25, 1863, during the Civil War.

Today is National Medal of Honor Day, a special day set aside to honor all recipients of the Medal of Honor - the United States highest military decoration. Every March 25th commemorates the six-character trait pillars, courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity, and commitment espoused by Medal of Honor recipients, according to the Patriot Post. Congress passed a bill in 1990 to declare the holiday, which became Public Law 101-564 after President George H.W. Bush’s signature. National Medal of Honor Day was recognized for the first time in 1991.
