Sec. 6241. Medal of honor

-STATUTE-

The President may award, and present in the name of Congress, a

medal of honor of appropriate design, with ribbons and

appurtenances, to a person who, while a member of the naval

service, distinguishes himself conspicuously by gallantry and

intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of

duty -

(1) while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United

States;

(2) while engaged in military operations involving conflict

with an opposing foreign force; or

(3) while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an

armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the

United States is not a belligerent party.

Stat. 1056; Aug. 7,

1942, ch. 551, Sec.

1, 56 Stat. 743.

-------------------------------

In subsection (a) the word ''award'' is added for clarity since

the President determines the recipient, in addition to presenting

the medal in the name of Congress. The words ''a member of the

naval service'' are substituted for the words ''in the naval

service of the United States'' for uniformity. The word

''distinguishes'' is substituted for the words ''shall * * *

distinguish'' for uniformity.

In subsection (b) the words ''of the medal of honor authorized on

August 8, 1942'' are substituted for the words ''adopted pursuant

to the Act approved December 21, 1861 (12 Stat. 330)'' for the

reason that the 1861 Act does not establish the design, and the

date of formal adoption of the design of the medal is obscure. The

effect of the subsection is to continue the design recognized by 34

U.S.C. 354.

AMENDMENTS

1996 - Par. (2). Pub. L. 104-106 inserted ''or'' after ''an

opposing foreign force;''.

1963 - Pub. L. 88-77 enlarged the authority to award the medal of

honor, which was limited to those cases in which persons

distinguished themselves in action involving actual conflict with

an enemy, or in the line of his profession, and without detriment

to the mission of his command or to the command to which attached,

to permit its award for distinguished service while engaged in an

action against an enemy of the United States, while engaged in

military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign

force, or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an

armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United

States is not a belligerent party, and substituted the requirement

that it be of appropriate design, with ribbons and appurtenances,

for the requirement that it be the same as that authorized on

August 8, 1942.

capacity with the Navy or Marine Corps, distinguishes himself by

extraordinary heroism not justifying the award of a medal of honor

with an opposing foreign force; or

(3) while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an

United States'' for clarity. To be eligible for the award, a

person need not be a member of the naval service, but only serving

in some capacity either with the Navy or with the Marine Corps.

AMENDMENTS

1963 - Pub. L. 88-77 enlarged the authority to award the Navy

cross, which was limited to those cases in which persons

distinguished themselves in connection with military operations

the specific appropriation title, the appropriation authorized to

be used. Specific appropriation titles vary from one appropriation

act to the next. The permanent authority contained in 34 U.S.C.

359 for the Secretary of the Navy to use appropriations available

for the pay of the Navy and the Marine Corps is not affected by a

change in the titles of those appropriations nor is it affected by

a specific authorization in an appropriation act to use, during the

life of the act, a different type of appropriation.
