The Norfolk Trail of Honor is dedicated to those service members with a direct connection to City of Norfolk who has received the Medal of Honor.

Plaques

Plaques include Medal of Honor recipients from:

  • Civil War
  • Indian Wars
  • Spanish-American War
  • World War II
  • Vietnam

Included is the first African-American to earn the Medal of Honor and the youngest Marine ever to receive the award.

A plaque listing donors will also be part of the display. A $1,000 donation toward the cost of this project will result in your organization being listed as a donor honoring those who were willing to go above and beyond the call of duty.
