Roosevelt Medal Of Honor

From the 50.000 construction workers, a total of 7423 were awarded the Roosevelt Medal of Honor in the time between 1904 and 1914. Only 42 men and women made it to the additional 4 bars, that together with the medal stand for 10 years of service in or for the Canal.

Besides a portrait of the president of the front, the medal, which is also often referred to as the Canal Service Medal shows the Culebra Cut and reads the words "The Land divided, The World united." on the back.

The medal had been introduced after a short visit of president Roosevelt where he had seen what a sheer nightmare for the workers it was, building the canal.
