Medal of Honor
July 17-23, 2022
The Great War, fought between 1914 and 1918, is called the war to end all wars. And for good reason. Dynasties were destroyed, new political boundaries were created, and tens of millions of people lost their lives. As important, the United States ascended for the first time to the role of world leader. Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers, “doughboys,” were transported to the Western Front in France in the spring of 1918 where battles were fought and legends were made. Some returned home, while others remain in their final resting place among their comrades.
This 7-day expedition will visit sites associated with some of America's greatest heroes from World War One, our Medal of Honor recipients, including Alvin C. York, Bernie Atkinson, Calvin War, Milo Lemert, Buck Karnes, and Edward Talley, all Tennesseans. Along the way, you will receive in-depth analysis by our expert guides and historians as we visit battlefields and memorial sites associated with some of America’s most famous engagements, such as Belleau Wood, Chateau-Thierry, and the Meuse-Argonne, along with places where a who’s who of significant historic American characters fought and died, including Eddie Rickenbacker, Quinton Roosevelt, John Pershing, George S. Patton, George C. Marshall, and poet Joyce Kilmer just to name a few.
