HEROES OF MOLOSSIA AND HONORARY CITIZENS
HEROES OF MOLOSSIA
The Republic of Molossia honors the Heroes of Molossia, significant individuals, living or deceased, that have contributed to Molossia's development as a nation. Our Heroes are recognized on the Molossia Heroes Monument, at the east end of Red Square. This column not only acknowledges those individuals that have contributed to our nation, but also honors all Molossians in the wars in which our nation has been involved, specifically the Mustachistan War and the War Against East Germany. Plaques on the column recognize both individual heroes and the nation's wartime sacrifices.
As well as the monument, 30 April is a national holiday, Heroes Day. This date was selected because of its relation to Camerone Day, the observance of the Battle of Camerone, wherein 65 French Foreign Legionnaires fought against 3000 Mexican soldiers in an heroic last stand. Long admired by His Excellency, The President, the anniversary of this iconic battle is a perfect date on which to recognize our own heroes. An observance will thus be held on 30 April every year, both to remember the wartime heroes of Molossia as well as the individual Heroes of Molossia.
Individuals who are recognized by the Molossian Republic for their influence on our nation, or just because we like 'em!
