Members of the Fifth Infantry Re-enactors, along with re-enactors from other groups and interested citizens, will be holding a special Memorial Day service at 11 a.m. Monday, May 30, at the Custer County Cemetery to honor Miles City's Medal of Honor winners, in particular Henry Hogan who died 100 years ago and was one of only 19 double MoH winners. After a gun salute and service for Hogan, we will move over to the grave of James Pym, who won his MoH at the Custer battle. His medal is one of two on display at the battlefield today.

If anyone would be interested in attending, they would be welcome, especially anyone in uniform or period costume.

For further information, contact Amorette Allison. I'm in the book.

One does not "win" the Medal of Honor. One is awarded the Medal of Honor or is a Medal of Honor recipient. It is not a contest.

Fine. Are you interested in attending the ceremony to honor Hogan and Pym or just like being pedantic and putting me in my place?

I would love to attend this as it is a great way to honor a few great Americans, unfortunately I will not be able to.

I think you might have the wrong BO9, Gunnar.

I apologize for being rude. Yesterday was NOT a good day.

Anyway, we would love to have anyone attend, even if you can't be in uniform or costume, to recognize two true American heroes who have been rather ignored. Their stories are amazing. It should be a lovely ceremony.
