Mission

The mission of the CMOHS San Antonio 2024 Committee is to host a successful Medal of Honor Celebration in San Antonio. Our success will be measured by:

  • the Society wanting to return to San Antonio for their annual gathering in the future, 
  • the San Antonio community appreciating the Medal of Honor Recipients,
  • the Medal of Honor Recipients appreciating San Antonio’s unique role in our military, and 
  • at least one school or youth organization fully adopting the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s Character Development Program.

Schedule of events

While here, Medal of Honor Recipients will connect in our community by visiting our military hospitals and related organizations to show support for all veterans. Additionally, the Recipients will visit our local schools where they will share the Society’s core values. As part of the Society’s mission, they will be introducing the Character Development Program and offering it to our schools. If adopted, they will continue to support the curriculum with visits and experiences with our young people. Plans are underway for a robust week of activities and engagements that will leave lasting impressions as attendees immerse themselves in our culture and the rich history of our community.

Patriot awards gala

On October 3, 2024, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society will present four distinguished awards at the highly anticipated Patriot Awards Gala to honor selected individuals who, through their life’s work, promote and perpetuate the principles upon which our nation is founded and encourage the six core values of courage, commitment, integrity, sacrifice, citizenship and patriotism.

This annual black-tie celebration will be held in the magnificent Stars at Night Ballroom at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the largest ballroom in Texas. Join us for an unforgettable evening by securing your sponsorship table – simply click the button below.
