As of 25 June 2019, there have been 3,524 U.S.A. Medals of Honor awarded to 3,506 distinct recipients with 19 of those being double recipients. The number of actors who have twice portrayed a real-life or fictitious Medal of Honor recipient on film, television or streaming media is almost as rare. Sources: cmohs.org and Wikipedia

Which of these multiple character portrayals of a U.S.A. Medal of Honor recipient by an actor is your favorite dual portrayal?
