American Heroes

The President's Executive Order named 31 American heroes that will have a statue in the National Garden of American Heroes. The Task Force is currently seeking recommendations from Governors, Counties and the American people for additional heroes that should be added. The National Endowment for the Humanities is also compiling a list of additional people that meet the definition of an American Hero.
