World War I Valor Medals Review

Since 1941, Congress and the Department of Defense have reviewed the military’s process for awarding valor medals to ensure minority veterans were recognized equitably. No review has yet occurred for World War I veterans. Join members of the Valor Medals Review Task Force for a discussion on their work to recognize and honor the WWI veterans who were denied the Medal of Honor due to race.

In April 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate introduced separate bills to require the systematic review of minority veterans who served in World War I. The Valor Medals Review is being conducted by Park University’s George S. Robb Centre for the Study of the Great War and the Valor Medals Review Task Force, which was formed in 2018 in conjunction with the Foundation for the Commemoration of the World Wars on behalf of the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission.

Moderator:
Kimberlee Ried, Public Affairs Specialist, National Archives at Kansas City

Panelists:
Bridget Locke, Director of Strategic Communications, Park University
Dr. Timothy Westcott, Associate Professor of History and Director, George S. Robb Centre for the Study of the Great War, Park University


Presented in partnership with Park University and the National Archives at Kansas City.
Free with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
