U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer announced today the launch of an online petition to urge all decision-makers to expeditiously award the Medal of Honor to the late World War I hero, SGT Henry Johnson. The decision-makers include the Secretary of the Army, Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and President of the United States. In March 2011, Schumer and his staff revealed that they had uncovered game-changing evidence to support the posthumous award of the military's highest honor to Johnson.

Today Schumer announced the launch of an online petition for New Yorkers and everyone throughout the country and world to show their support for the effort to posthumously award the Medal of Honor to Henry Johnson by signing the petition.
