W ORLD WAR II UNITED STATES NAVY & MARINE CORPS HEROISM MEDAL, W/ FULL WRAP BROOCH. RE-RIBBONED DRAPE TESTED U. The Navy and Marine Corps Medal is the highest non-combat decoration awarded for heroism by the United States Department of the Navy to the members of the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The medal was established by an act of Congress on 7 August 1942. As the senior non-combat award for heroism, this award hinges on the actual level of personal “life threatening” risk experienced by the awardee. For heroic performance to rise to this level it must be clearly established that the act involved very specific life-threatening risk to the awardee. During the mid-20th century, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal has been awarded instead of the Silver or Gold Lifesaving Medal, for sea rescues involving risk to life. This is due primarily to the creation of a variety of additional military decorations that are often considered more prestigious than the Lifesaving Medal.

ORIGINAL WORLD WAR II UNITED STATES ARMY SOLDIER’S MEDAL FOR VALOR, SLOT BROOCH, PIN-BACK RIBBON BAR, LAPEL PIN & TITLED LEATHERETTE CASE. RIBBON DRAPE & BAR TESTED U. NEGATIVE AS SHOWN IN PHOTO #12. The Soldier’s Medal is an individual decoration of the United States Army. It was introduced as Section 11 of the Air Corps Act, passed by the Congress of the United States on July 2, 1926. The criteria for the medal are: The Soldier’s Medal is awarded to any person of the Armed Forces of the United States or of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in any capacity with the Army of the United States distinguished himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. A need to recognize acts of heroism in 1922 resulted in the War Department’s issuing orders for acts of bravery during peacetime. This led to an Act of Congress Public Law 446-69th Congress, July 2, 1926 44 Stat. 780 which established the Soldiers Medal for acts of heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. The Secretary of War directed that the Quartermaster General prepare and submit appropriate designs of the Soldiers Medal per letter signed by The Adjutant General dated 11 August 1926. The Soldier’s Medal is considered to be equivalent to the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, Airman’s Medal, and the Coast Guard Medal. The first Soldier’s Medals were awarded on October 17, 1927 to John F. Burns and James P. Martin for their heroism during a fire and to James K. Wilson and Cleophas C. Burnett for saving people from drowning. The period of time when the most Soldier’s Medals were awarded was World War II (at least hundreds were awarded). The distinguishing criterion for awarding the Soldier’s Medal, per Army Regulation 600-8-22, para 3-13, is The performance must have involved personal hazard or danger and the voluntary risk of life under conditions not involving conflict with an armed enemy. Awards will not be made solely on the basis of having saved a life. It is the highest honor a soldier can receive for an act of valor in a non-combat situation, held to be equal to or greater than the level which would have justified an award of the Distinguished Flying Cross had the act occurred in combat. Any enlisted American servicemember who is eligible for retirement pay will receive an increase of 10 percent in retirement pay, if the level of valor was equal to that which would earn the Distinguished Service Cross. Additional awards of the medal are denoted by oak leaf clusters worn on the suspension and service ribbon of the medal. The bronze medal is issued as a 1 3/8 inch wide Bronze octagon with an eagle displayed, standing on a fasces, between two groups of stars of six and seven, above the group of six a spray of leaves. On the reverse is a shield paly of 13 pieces, on the chief the letters US, supported by sprays of laurel and oak, around the upper edge the inscription SOLDIERS MEDAL and across the face the words FOR VALOR. In the base is a panel for the name of the recipient to be engraved. The medal is suspended from the ribbon by a rectangular-shaped metal loop with corners rounded. The ribbon is 1 3/8 inches wide and consists of the following stripes: 3/8 inch Ultramarine Blue 67118 on each side and the center containing 13 White and Red stripes of equal width (7 White 67101 and 6 Old Glory Red 67156).

ORIGINAL EARLY WORLD WAR II UNITED STATES ARMY DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MEDAL, SLOT BROOCH, & PIN-BACK RIBBON BAR. RIBBON DRAPE & BAR TESTED UV NEGATIVE AS SHOWN IN PHOTO #12. THE DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MEDAL IS THE 3RD HIGHEST AWARD IN THE U. ONLY BEHIND THE MEDAL OF HONOR AND DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CROSS. Both the Army and Navy Distinguished Service Medals were established in 1918 and 1919 respectively, as part of the new Pyramid of Honor that came out of the Medal of Honor review of 1917. They were part of the program to authorize new awards for presentation to veterans of World War I who performed heroically, gallantly, and/or meritoriously during the war but whose service and/or actions did not rise to the level demanded for award of the Medal of Honor. Until 1942 the Navy DSM took precedence over the Navy Cross. The Distinguished Service Medal (DSM) is a military award of the United States Army that is presented to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the United States military, has distinguished himself or herself by exceptionally meritorious service to the Government in a duty of great responsibility. The performance must be such as to merit recognition for service that is clearly exceptional. Exceptional performance of normal duty will not alone justify an award of this decoration. Separate Distinguished Service Medals exist for the different branches of the military as well as a fifth version of the medal which is a senior award of the United States Department of Defense. The Army version of the Distinguished Service Medal is typically referred to simply as the “Distinguished Service Medal” while the other branches of service use the service name as a prefix. 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 high positions of great importance. Awards may be made to persons other than members of the Armed Forces of the United States for wartime services only, and then only under exceptional circumstances, with the express approval of the President in each case. The Coat of Arms of the United States in Gold surrounded by a circle of Dark Blue enamel, 1 ½ inches in diameter, bearing the inscription “FOR DISTINGUISHED SERVICE MCMXVIII”. On the reverse is a scroll for the name of the recipient (which is to be engraved) upon a trophy of flags and weapons. The medal is suspended by a bar attached to the ribbon. The ribbon is 1 3/8 inches wide and consists of the following stripes. 5/16 inch Scarlet 67111. 1/16 inch Ultramarine Blue 67118. 5/8 inch White 67101. 1/16 inch Ultramarine Blue. Additional awards of the Distinguished Service Medal are denoted by oak leaf clusters. The Distinguished Service Medal is awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the United States Army, has distinguished himself or herself by exceptionally meritorious service to the Government in a duty of great responsibility. The performance must be such as to merit recognition for service which is clearly exceptional. 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 a conspicuously significant achievement. Awards may be made to persons other than members of the Armed Forces of the United States for wartime services only, and only then under exceptional circumstances with the express approval of the President in each case. The Distinguished Service Medal was authorized by Presidential Order dated 01-02-1918, and confirmed by Congress on 07-09-1918. It was announced by War Department General Order No. 6, 1918-01-12, with the following information concerning the medal: A bronze medal of appropriate design and a ribbon to be worn in lieu thereof, to be awarded by the President to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the Army shall hereafter distinguish himself or herself, or who, since 04-06-1917, has distinguished himself or herself by exceptionally meritorious service to the Government in a duty of great responsibility in time of war or in connection with military operations against an armed enemy of the United States. The Act of Congress on 07-09-1918, recognized the need for different types and degrees of heroism and meritorious service and included such provisions for award criteria. The current statutory authorization for the Distinguished Service Medal is Title 10, United States Code, Section 3743. Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you!
