Boxed Army Commendation Medal Set

The Army Commendation Medal was established on December 18, 1945. It is awarded to recognize acts of achievement or meritorious service of junior soldiers or to general officers for acts of noncombatant-related heroism which do not meet the requirements for an award of the Soldier’s Medal. The medal is boxed in a hinged dark blue leatherette presentation case with a gold design and the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on the lid at the bottom right. The medal rests on an off white velvet covered insert that rests in the bottom of the box. It is also protected by two pieces of foam that were included for shipping/storage. Included with the set is the Army Commendation Medal, campaign ribbon for the medal, and the enameled mini campaign lapel ribbon. I purchased this set in the mid 1980s so it would have to at least date back to that time. A very nice set!

National Defense Service Medal

   The National Defense Service Medal is a military service medal of the United States Military originally commissioned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. 
   Created in 1953, the National Defense Service Medal was intended to be a “blanket campaign medal” awarded to any member of the United States military who served honorably during a designated time period of which a “national emergency” had been declared.

   In the years since the creation of the National Defense Service Medal, it is authorized only for the following time periods.

  • June 27, 1950 to July 27, 1954 for service during the Korean War
  • January 1, 1961 to August 14, 1974 for service during the Vietnam War
  • August 2, 1990 to November 30, 1995 for service during the Gulf War
  • September 11, 2001 to a date to be announced for service during the War on Terrorism
The National Defense Service Medal is awarded to anyone who serves on active duty in the United States military during the above time periods. For service in the Gulf War and War on Terrorism, a one time only exception, was also authorized for members of the Army Reserve or National Guard ordered to active duty or who were performing "reserve service in good standing". The medal is not authorized for members of the inactive reserve component.
 
   These medala are marked 10/92 which would be for the Gulf War. Please email me for availability and shipping prices.
