There are a lot of soldiers that participated in the war and made sure that they would put up a good fight to protect their country’s honor. The number of people who are given medals would change from one country to another. Take note that there are also different types of medals that are available with some being more sought after as compared to others.

For instance, there are some soldiers who have aimed to get the “Taeguk Medal.” Not everyone was able to receive this. Soldiers would need to show an extraordinary amount of bravery and courage to go through the war. Most soldiers are traumatized and would need treatments after.

The Medal of Honor still has its place as the greatest military decoration any military man can ever receive in service. The Medal of Honor is presented by the United States of America government to any of the members of its armed forces, be it the police, the SWAT team, the FBI, CIA, US Army, or the US marine.

Due to nature this Medal of Honor has, it is most times presented posthumously as most of the soldiers who earn it might have died on duty.
