This page will show the name, rank, and conflict for each of Georgia's 27 Medal of Honor recipients. The list is arranged alphabetically within those categories.
Not surprisingly there are more Army recipients (13) than any other branch of the service. The Marine Corps recipients (10) are a close second, and there are two each for the Air Force and Navy.
The color coding used in this chart is as follows:
The individual lost his life during the action that resulted in receiving the Medal of Honor
The individual survived the action that resulted in receiving the Medal of Honor, but is no longer living
The individual is still living
