Army Achievement Medal
Criteria: Awarded for outstanding achievement or meritorious service not of a nature that would otherwise warrant awarding the Commendation Medal. Since the Army Achievement Medal is designated as an award solely for junior personnel, it is generally only awarded to officers in the pay grade of O-4 and below and enlisted personnel below the grade of E-7. Award authority rests with local commanders, granting a broad discretion of when and for what action the Achievement Medal may be awarded. The Army Achievement Medal may be awarded in a combat area, but for non-combat meritorious service. The Achievement Medal is the lower of the United States military’s meritorious service medals. The Achievement Medal was first proposed as a means to recognize the contributions of junior officers and enlisted personnel who were not eligible to receive the higher Commendation Medal or the Meritorious Service Medal. Additional awards are denoted by oak leaf clusters. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf

The Army Commendation Medal is typically awarded to junior officers and enlisted personnel as an end-of-tour award. Additional awards are denoted by oak leaf clusters. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device, Bronze Letter "V" Device

Army Distinguished Service Cross Medal
Criteria: A U.S. Army decoration awarded for extreme gallantry and risk of life in actual combat with an armed enemy force. Actions which merit the Distinguished Service Cross must be of such a high degree to be above those required for all other U.S. combat decorations but not meeting the criteria for the Medal of Honor. The Distinguished Service Cross is equivalent to the Navy Cross (Navy and Marine Corps) and the Air Force Cross (Air Force). The Distinguished Service Cross was first awarded during World War I. In addition, a number of awards were made for actions before World War One. In many cases, these were to soldiers who had received a Certificate of Merit for gallantry which, at the time, was the only other honor besides the Medal of Honor the Army could award. Others were belated recognition of actions in the Philippines, on the Mexican Border and during the Boxer Rebellion. This decoration should not be confused with the Distinguished Service Medal, which recognizes meritorious service to the government of the United States (as a senior military officer or government official) rather than individual acts of bravery (as a member of the United States Army). Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device These awards are only presented to military personnel for exceptional valor and heroism in combat and fall just short of the Medal of Honor. These awards are the: Army Distinguished Service Cross; Air Force Cross; Navy Cross. It’s extremely important for us to protect the legacy of these awards and their recipients. Although these items can be ordered through the website, the awards will not be shipped without a formal verification process, and we reserve the right to not ship them at all. Any order placed in our system for these specific awards will be highly scrutinized before shipment. Our investigative process will include a search of national databases listing legitimate recipients – and if not appearing in those databases we will require submission of an official DD-214 or other similar official paperwork authenticating the individual’s receipt of the award.

Army Distinguished Service Medal
Criteria: Awarded to any soldier who, while serving in any capacity with the United States Army, distinguishes himself or herself with exceptionally meritorious service to the United States in a duty of great responsibility. The performance must be of a level as to merit recognition for service that is clearly “exceptional.” Exceptional performance of normal duties does not alone justify the award. For service not related to actual war, the term "duty of a great responsibility" applies to a narrower range of positions than in time of war, and requires evidence of conspicuously significant achievement. However, justification of the award may accrue by virtue of exceptionally meritorious service in a succession of higher positions of great importance. Because of the medal’s criteria, most recipients of the Army Distinguished Service Medal are general officers. Awards may also be made to persons other than members of the U.S. Armed Forces for wartime services only, and then only under exceptional circumstances, with express Presidential approval. Separate Distinguished Service Medals exist for the different U.S. branches of service as well as a fifth version of the medal (a senior award of the United States Department of Defense).

Army Good Conduct Medal
Criteria: Awarded to any enlisted member of the United States Army who completes three consecutive years of "honorable and faithful service.” Such service implies that a standard enlistment was completed without any non-judicial punishments, disciplinary infractions, or court martial offenses. If a service member commits an offense, the three-year mark "resets" and a service member must perform an additional three years of discipline free service before the Good Conduct may be authorized. During times of war, the Army Good Conduct Medal may be awarded for one year of faithful service. The medal may also be awarded posthumously, to any soldier killed in the line of duty. To denote additional decorations of the award, a series of Good Conduct Knots are provided as attachments to the decoration. Service for the Army Good Conduct Medal must be performed on active duty and the medal is not awarded to members of the Army reserve or National Guard who are not federalized to active service. For those Reserve and Guard members who satisfactorily perform annual training and drill duty, however, the Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal may be awarded in lieu. Attachments: Bronze Good Conduct Knot Device, Silver Good Conduct Knot Device.

Defense Superior Service Medal
Criteria: A senior decoration of the Department of Defense. Awarded to members of the United States military who perform "superior meritorious service in a position of significant responsibility." The decoration is most often presented to senior officers in the flag and general officer grades. The medal is presented in the name of the Secretary of Defense and was first created in 1976. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device.

Department of Defense Distinguished Service Medal
Criteria: Presented for exceptionally distinguished performance of duty contributing to national security or defense of the United States. The decoration is awarded only at the highest levels of the military while assigned to a joint activity. The medal may also be awarded to other senior officers whose direct and individual contributions to national security or defense are recognized as being so exceptional in scope and value as to be equivalent to contributions normally associated with positions encompassing broader responsibilities. It is the United States's highest peacetime defense award. Normally, such responsibilities deserving of the Defense Distinguished Service Medal are held by the most senior officers such as the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Chiefs and Vice Chiefs of the Services, and Commanders and Deputy Commanders of the Unified Commands whose duties bring them into direct contact with the Secretary of Defense and other senior officials. This decoration takes precedence over the Distinguished Service Medals of the separate services and is not to be awarded to any individual for a period of service for which an Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard Distinguished Service Medal is awarded. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device.

Distinguished Flying Cross Medal
Criteria: Awarded to any officer or enlisted member of the United States armed forces who distinguishes himself or herself in combat in support of operations by "heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight, subsequent to November 11, 1918." The decoration may also be given for an act performed prior to that date when the individual has been recommended for, but has not received the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Navy Cross, or Distinguished Service Medal. During wartime, members of the Armed Forces of friendly foreign nations serving with the United States are eligible for the award. It is also given to those who display heroism while working as instructors or students at flying schools. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device.

French Croix De Guerre Medal - WWII
Criteria: In the United States military, the Croix de guerre was commonly accepted as a foreign decoration. In the modern age, however, it remains one of the most difficult foreign awards to verify entitlement. This is since the Croix de guerre was often presented with original orders, only, and rarely entered into a permanent service record. The unit award was virtually never entered into U.S. records, especially since in most cases it was considered a temporary decoration which was surrendered when an individual departed a unit. An added complication is that the 1973 National Archives Fire destroyed a large number of World War II personnel records, meaning that there are very few sources from which to verify a veteran's entitlement to the Croix de guerre. Today, members of United States 5th Marine Regiment or 6th Marine Regiments and the Army's 1st BN U.S. 28th Infanty Regiment, are authorized to wear a fourragre signifying that brigade's award of three Croix de guerre during the First World War, but only while that individual is assigned to the unit. The wearing of the decoration is considered ceremonial and the fourragre is not entered as an official military award in permanent service records. Attachments: N/A.

Inter-American Defense Board Medal
Criteria: Awarded to any military officer, serving in a member nation of the Organization of American States, who completes a tour of service with the Inter-American Defense Board. The award is also presented to military personnel serving on the staff of the IADB Chairman, Secretariat, or for those who complete instructor tours at the Inter-American Defense College. The Inter-American Defense Board Medal is an international military award which was created on December 11, 1945, by the 91st session of the Inter-American Defense Board, a Pan-American defense group devoted to the security of the member countries of the Organization of American States. In the United States, the Inter-American Defense Board Medal was only recognized as a military award in May 1981. Since that time, the Inter-American Defense Board Medal had been approved for wear on United States military uniforms, ranking below United States decorations and before the military awards of individual foreign countries. The Inter-American Defense Board Medal is a one time decoration but may be upgraded with service stars depending on the length of time an individual serves with the Inter-American Defense Board. A silver service star is awarded for one year of service while a gold star is awarded for three years of service. Additional gold stars are awarded for subsequent tours of five years of service.

The Legion of Merit is one of only two United States decorations to be issued as a neck order (the other being the Medal of Honor), and the only United States decoration which may be issued in award degrees (much like an Order of chivalry or certain Orders of Merit). The Legion of Merit is seventh in the order of precedence of U.S. military decorations, and is worn after the Defense Superior Service Medal and before the Distinguished Flying Cross. The award is given for service rendered in a clearly exceptional manner. Performance of duties normal to the grade, branch, specialty or assignment, and experience of an individual is not an adequate basis for this award. For service not related to actual war the term "key individual" applies to a narrower range of positions than in time of war and requires evidence of significant achievement. In peacetime, service should be in the nature of a special requirement or of an extremely difficult duty performed in an unprecedented and clearly exceptional manner. However, the award may be justified by exceptionally meritorious service in a succession of important positions. Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device.

Meritorious Service Medal
Criteria: Presented to members of the United States Armed Forces who distinguished themselves by outstanding non-combat meritorious achievement or service to the United States subsequent to January 16, 1969.

A higher decoration, known as the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, is intended for similar services performed under joint service with the United States Department of Defense. Today, most MSM recipients are field grade officers (pay grades O-4 to O-6) and senior noncommissioned officers (E-7 to E-9), as exceptionally meritorious service at that level of responsibility is usually required for award of the medal Attachments: Bronze Oak Leaf Device, Silver Oak Leaf Device.

Civil War Campaign Medal - Army
Criteria: The medal was first authorized in 1905 for the fortieth anniversary of the Civil War's conclusion. It was awarded to any veteran of the conflict, regardless of what side the veteran had served on (Union or Confederate). It was issued in two versions, one for United States Army or Confederate States Army service and the other for duty in the Confederate or United States Navy. The Army Civil War Campaign Medal displayed an engraved image of Abraham Lincoln while the Navy version depicted an ironclad battle. Members of the Confederate Marines and United States Marine Corps were eligible to receive the Navy version of the Civil War Campaign Medal. The medal was originally intended as a Commemorative Decoration, but was almost immediately granted status as a military decoration authorized for wear on active duty uniforms. This was due in large part to the fact that several senior military officers, still on active duty in 1905, were veterans of the Civil War.

Criteria: Awarded to U.S. Army personnel having participated in military actions against Native American Indians between the years of 1790 and 1891. The United States Department of the Army declared the following fourteen campaigns as credible service to the Indian Campaign Medal: Miami Campaign, part of the Northwest Indian War (January, 1790-August, 1795); Tippecanoe Campaign, part of Tecumseh's War (September 21-November 18, 1811); Creek Campaigns or Creek War (July 27, 1813-August 9, 1814 and February, 1836-July, 1837); Seminole Campaigns or Seminole Wars (November 20, 1817-October 31, 1818; December 28, 1835-August 14, 1842; and December 15, 1855-May, 1858); Black Hawk Campaign or Black Hawk War (April 26-September, 1832); Comanche Campaign (1867-1875); Modoc Campaign or Modoc War (1872-1873); Apache Campaigns or Apache Wars (1873 and 1885-1886); Little Big Horn Campaign or Black Hills War (1876-1877); Nez Perce Campaign or Nez Perce War (1877); Bannock Campaign or Bannock War (1878); Cheyenne Campaign or Cheyenne War (1878-1879); Ute Campaign or Ute War (September, 1879-November, 1880); Pine Ridge Campaign (November, 1890-January, 1891). The Indian Campaign Medal was issued as a one-time decoration only and there were no devices or service stars authorized for those who had participated in multiple actions. The only attachment authorized to the medal was the silver citation star, awarded for meritorious or heroic conduct. The silver citation star was the predecessor of the Silver Star and was awarded to eleven soldiers between 1865 and 1891. In the mid-20th century, the Army declared the Indian Campaign Medal obsolete and began an effort, under pressure, to collect and destroy original and reproduced Indian Campaign Medals. This was due in large part to the notion that the Indian Campaign Medal represented an effort to subjugate a culture and its people. In the modern age, the Indian Campaign Medal is one of the most difficult antique decorations to locate. The award was created in 1905.

For receipt, a service member was required to perform military duty during the time period of eligibility and in one of the following military engagements: (1) Veracruz Expedition: April 24 to November 26, 1914; (2) Punitive Expedition into Mexico: March 14, 1916 to February 7, 1917; (3) Buena Vista, Mexico: December 1, 1917; (4) San Bernardino Canyon, Mexico: December 26, 1917; (5) LeGrulla, Texas: January 8 - January 9, 1918; (6) Pilares, Chihuahua: March 28, 1918; (7) Nogales, Arizona: November 1 - November 5, 1915, or on August 27, 1918; (8) El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Ju�rez, Chihuahua: June 15 - June 16, 1919. The United States Navy issued the Mexican Service Medal to members of the Navy and Marine Corps who participated in any of the above actions, as well as to service members who served aboard U.S. naval vessels, patrolling Mexican waters, between April 21, 1914, and November 26, 1914, or between March 14, 1916 and February 7, 1917. The Mexican Service Medal was also awarded to any service member who was killed or wounded while participating in action against hostile Mexican forces between April 12, 1911 and February 7, 1917. Although a single decoration, both the Army and Navy issued two different versions of the Mexican Service Medal. The Army Mexican Service Medal displayed an engraving of a yucca plant, while the Navy version depicted a waterfront fortress. Both medals displayed the annotation "1911 - 1917" at the bottom of the medal. The medals now appear identical on the front side with the reverse side of the award annotating a specific reference to either the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps (depending on the service member's branch). For those Army members who had been cited for gallantry in combat, the Citation Star was authorized as a device to the Mexican Service Medal. There were no devices authorized for the Navy's version of the decoration. A similar decoration, known as the Mexican Border Service Medal also exists for those having performed support duty to Mexican combat expeditions from within the United States. The Mexican Service Medal is an award of the United States military, established by a General Order of the United States War Department on December 12, 1917.

Philippine Congressional Medal
Philippine Congressional Medal Criteria: Awarded to U.S. Army personnel having enlisted United States Army for the purpose of fighting in the Philippine-American War. The four primary criteria, to be awarded the Philippine Congressional Medal, were as follows: Enlisted between April 21 and October 26, 1898; Served beyond April 11, 1899; Served in the Philippines after July 6, 1899; Received an honorable discharge (or died prior to being discharged). The decoration was different from the Philippine Campaign Medal in that the Philippine Campaign Medal recognized general service in the Philippines while the Philippine Congressional Medal was intended for special services rendered. The Philippine Congressional Medal was considered an authorized military decoration, but soon became regarded as a commemorative medal since it recognized a single event and also was not eligible for presentation to United States Navy and Marine Corps personnel. The Philippine Congressional Medal was established by the United States Congress on July 9, 1906

United States Air Force Command Reserve
Award Description Statistics
Air Reserve Meritorious Service Medal
DESCRIPTION AND SYMBOLISM In the center of a bronze medallion one and three eighths inches in diameter, an eagle with wings displayed is shown with an olive branch in its beak. The eagle is resting on a ring enclosing a five pointed star charged with a disc in the center. On a twofold scroll arched across the top (supported by the eagle's wings), is the inscription MERITORIOUS SERVICE, and below the wings (terminating on each side of the ring in base) the encircling inscription AIR RESERVE (on the left) and between two flight symbols FORCES (on the right), all in front of thirteen incised rays extending from the center to the edge of the medal. The eagle bearing an olive branch in its beak resting on a ring enclosing a star charged with a disc is suggested by the emblem for the Air Force Reserve. The eagle refers to the ever-watchful, poised, and ready Reserve, and the olive branch indicates a desire for peace. The ring bearing a star with a disc denotes the historic aircraft identification marking used by the Air Force. The rays signify the recipient's accomplish-ments as a shining example of those qualities for which the medal is granted and also alludes to the light from the sky (the major theater of operations for the Air Reserve Forces). Reverse In the center of a bronze medallion one and three eighths inches in diameter, a cloud formation containing stylized wings and lightning bolts appears above the word TO (leaving room to engrave the recipient's name). On the outside of the cloud formation, and forming a circle around it, the words, EFFICIENCY - EXEMPLARY BEHAVIOR - FIDELITY. The cloud formation represents the medium of the Air Force, as do the stylized wings and lightning bolts. The words forming a circle around the cloud formation refer to the traits for which the medal is awarded.

Award Description Statistics
Armed Forces Civilian Service Medal
Criteria: Awarded to civilians having been involved in direct support of the Armed Forces and who meet other specific criteria pertaining to the duration of the support in a specifically designated military operation beginning on or after 1 June 1992. To date, the designated operations are the following: Former Republic of Yugoslavia Operations (Maritime Monitor, Provide Promise, Deny Flight, Sharp Guard, Able Sentry, Joint Endeavor, Joint Guard, and Joint Forge); Haiti Operations (UN Mission in Haiti, US Forces Haiti, and US Support Group Haiti); and Provide Comfort. As a general rule, when the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has approved issuance of the AFSM for military participation in humanitarian or peacekeeping operations, the AFCSM may be awarded for the same operation. Employees must be engaged in direct support of the military for 30 consecutive days in the area of eligibility or for the full period when an operation is of less than 30 days in a military operation awarded the AFSM. Alternatively, the employee would qualify for the medal by providing direct support for 60 non-consecutive days in an AFSM operation provided this support involves the employee entering the areas of eligibility. The areas of eligibility are the same as designated for approved AFSM military operations, specifically: The foreign territory on which military troops have actually landed or are present and specifically deployed for the operation; Adjacent water areas in which ships are operating, patrolling, or providing direct support of the operation; and the air space above and adjacent to the area in which an operation is being conducted. The AFCSM is a "theater" award: Any eligible civilian employee who has been in the theater of operations and meets the other qualifying criteria is eligible for the award. Although the beginning date for the award has been established, the ending date has not yet been determined. No more than one AFCSM medal may be awarded to any one civilian employee. Participation in subsequent eligible operations may be acknowledged with a certificate and/or a 3/16 Bronze Service Star. A contribution to or support of an AFSM military operation by employees assigned to remotely located activities, that is, outside the areas of eligibility, is not justification for award of the AFCSM. Such performance or contribution, if merited, may be acknowledged by other appropriate recognition
