More than ever before since World War II, freedom as we know it is being challenged, and it is up to all of us to stand up and explain to our families, children, and grandchildren, as well as friends and students, the crossroads that looms before us. Let the Medal of Freedom be that inspiration.

Take Home an Iconic Piece of American History
Each Medal of Freedom contains an authenticated piece of USS Arizona steel 1
The "A" embedded on the front of each Medal of Freedom is made from authenticated steel from USS Arizona's superstructure.1 Each medal ordered will include its own signed and framable Certificate of Authenticity.
The iconic steel used to produce the USS Arizona Medal of Freedom has been created by mixing it into a stainless steel alloy and then coated in a satin lacquer finish in order that it will not rust or tarnish as it is passed down from one generation to the next.
