PRESENTED BY
THE MADISON COUNTY MILITARY HERITAGE COMMISSION 
AND 
THE MADISON COUNTY COMMISSION
HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA

This beautiful and colorful display is unlike any other of its type in America.
It is the only known complete display of decorations, service medals and awards of our military armed forces which also denotes when they were established and the criteria for which they were awarded.
You may view with pride the contributions of our men and women receiving these awards and their impact upon our great heritage.



These beautiful lighted mahogany display cases house the sixteen medals that are given to members of the Armed Forces for Acts of Valor.
A polished brass frame displays each of these distinguished medals and is accompanied by a brass plate depicting the criteria for receiving them.
Below each of these awards are the names of individual Madison Countians who received these decorations for heroic deeds at the risk of life, over and above the call of duty. Of these great Madison Countians we are proud to hail as "Heroes"


The home of the beautiful display of the Madison County Military Hall of Heroes is located in the lobby of the Madison County Courthouse in Huntsville Alabama. 
It is open to the public from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday. 
Admission is free.
