The Medal of Honor is awarded to Forrest Gump by Lyndon B. Johnson after Gump rescued soldiers and brought them to the river in the Vietnam War. Forrest later gives the medal to his love interest Jenny Curran as a present saying that he got it just by doing what she told him to do. She later leaves it with him after she leaves him when he asks her to marry him. It is never seen again after this scene.
