I'm looking for info/history on military medals

searched: Yahoo, bing, google: *military medals,*Legion of Honor, *Legion of Honor medal, *Legion of Honor medal significance, etc
setting: nowhere concrete yet

I'm looking for info on military medals, specifically (maybe) the Legion of Honor. One of my characters unjustly receives a medal and someone mentioned this might be a good one for him to get. But I can't really find any reliable history on this medal, what it symbolizes or its significance.

Can anyone help me out.
