An annual reunion for winners of the Congressional Medal of Honor is coming up in New York state — along with the 100th birthday of the oldest living recipient.

John Finn, Frank Currey and Nick Oresko are members the exclusive club. The 99-year-old Finn and 83-year-old Currey got together Friday morning to begin a weekend gathering near Albany.

The two men met at a similar reunion in 1946.

Oresko notes the gathering will be during the original date of Memorial Day — May 30.

Congress in the 1960s moved the Memorial Day observance to the last Monday in May to create a three-day weekend.

The medal is the nation's highest military award for valor. Fewer than 100 recipients are still living.
