The Congressional Medal of Honor is awarded only for military service, not for civilian service. Civilians do not win it. The Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom are the hight civilian honors given in the US. Now, it may be possible that the Congressional Medal Honor has been given by mistake a few times or to civilians who took heroic actions during a war they were officially not a part of. While most erroneous medals were revoked, it seems that a few civilians did get to keep theirs since they were in some paramilitary organization and did what would be considered heroic military service.
