A new bill proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas would allow Americans to purchase Medals of Honor they find overseas to bring back to the US for educational purposes. The Limiting and Enabling Gathering Awards Commemorating Yesteryear Act would allow the medals to be purchased for educational purposes to help fix a consequence of the Stolen Valor Act that banned importing the military medal. The bill would also create sanctions for those who try to sell or buy Medals of Honor, except to return them to the US. “Foreign sales of Medals of Honor harm the dignity and honor of all recipients. By creating a process for these medals to be donated to the military, museums, or educational institutions, future generations of Americans will be able to learn more about Medal of Honor recipients’ heroic service and countless contributions to our country,” Cruz stated.
