    Fourteen US Medal of Honor recipients spanning four wars and 75 years have signed on as supporters of US Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump, the candidate’s campaign announced in a press release on Monday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The endorsements come from one Medal of Honor recipient each from World War II, the Korean War, the conflict in Afghanistan, and 11 from the Vietnam War.

    "These soldiers are the personification of courage under fire; they are the best of us all," Trump said in the release. "Their honorable service to our country is an inspiration to every one of us and is a reminder that America has been the world’s most indispensable nation because of the great character of our people."

    The Medal of Honor is the highest award given to US military personnel.
