No such honor
Listening to NPR earlier today, I heard a reporter refer to the “Congressional Medal of Honor,” a common error. There is no such decoration, however frequently the term may crop up in casual use.
The decoration is the Medal of Honor, which is awarded “in the name of Congress.” It dates from 1862. There is, confusingly, a Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which received that name in a charter from Congress in 1958. But the society scrupulously refers to the medal as the Medal of Honor. So should NPR. And so should you.
