Commodore John Barry Medal Program





The Commodore John Barry Medal



The Father of the U.S. Navy-Commodore John Barry

           The Ancient Order of Hibernians have dedicated themselves to promoting the legacy of a true American Hero, Commodore John Barry.  He is officially recognized as the “Father of the American Navy”.  He received the U.S. Navy’s Commission #1 from President George Washington and was the first official flag officer in the U.S. Navy.  

Mockup of the Barry Memorial

 The A.O.H. has been working to inform and educate about the contributions of this great Irish-American with events and programs on both the National and Local level.  Nationally, the A.O.H. is currently involved in a project to build a John Barry Memorial on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.  The project includes a memorial, plaza, as well as renaming one of the Academy's entrance gates in John Barry's name.


          
The "Barry Gate" is now complete!

Here is a link to learn more about Commodore John Barry:






         In Yonkers, The Myles Scully Division One has offered “The John Barry Memorial Medal” as a Graduation Award to the 9 Catholic Elementary schools within the City.  The Medal is awarded to a graduating student who has excelled in U.S. History.  Students are presented a certificate and a medal that is worn around the neck.  We are proud to help recognize the life and contributions of an unsung American hero!
