A group of Americans that has received the U.S. military's highest honor for bravery is gathering this week for the premiere of a documentary that chronicles the history of the Medal of Honor. But the group does more than just pay tribute to military valor. For several years now, they have also been honoring ordinary civilians with a Citizen Medal of Honor -- for acts of bravery and service in communities around the country. VOA's Chris Simkins has more on the story.
