As a national sponsor for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation, Delta is committed to serving members of the U.S. armed forces.

As part of Delta's sponsorship and in recognition of National Medal of Honor Day on March 25, the airline sponsored the 14th annual Circle of Honor Gala Wednesday, which was held at the New York Stock Exchange and sponsored by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society and Foundation.

Delta's support of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation centers around sponsorship of educational programming and honoring each of the living 79 Medal of Honor recipients with Diamond Medallion status.

“Delta is proud to support the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation as they honor the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for others,” said Tad Hutcheson, Managing Director – Community Affairs. “Through our partnership we hope to honor the legacy of Medal of Honor recipients and give back to these true American heroes.”

In addition to Diamond Medallion status, the recipients receive unparalleled benefits ensuring that these heroes and their travel companions experience a smooth and seamless journey each and every time they travel on Delta. All future Medal of Honor recipients will also be awarded this status.

Delta is committed to supporting active military and veterans throughout the U.S. As part of its commitment, Delta partners with organizations such as the Fisher House Foundation, Luke's Wings, Marine Toys for Tots, Serving Our Troops, the USO and airport military lounges, including the Freedom Center in Detroit and the Minnesota Armed Forces Service Center.

Whether it's supporting a new Fisher House facility in Seattle, donating thousands of bikes to the Marine Toys for Tots campaign, donating miles to Luke’s Wings, serving barbecue at the Bob Hope USO or grilling steaks for the troops with Serving Our Troops, Delta will continue to support the men and women who serve or have served in the U.S. armed forces.
