Best Answer

IRISH.

Native born Irish have won 257 Medals of Honor, while Irish Americans have won an astounding 2,018 (more than twice the number awarded any other ethnic group). And this is out of 3,464 Medals of Honor total being awarded.

Don't believe me? Do the research and see for yourself.
