The Congressional Gold Medal marks the highest honor that Congress can award. Recent recipients have included police officers who defended the United States Capitol during the January 6 uprising and American troops who they were killed in a terrorist attack during the Pentagon’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan in August.
