When we constructed this catalog of official United States military decorations, the decision was made to also include the history and criteria for each award. This was done because many veterans may no longer have access to that information and it might be useful in determining eligibility. We include it here for your benefit and use as necessary.
The selection grid at the bottom of each product page allows
you to choose which type(s) of a particular decoration you want. Simply put a tick in the block next to the
item and we’ll do the rest. The OFFICIAL awards (medals, ribbons) are by the same manufacturers as issued by our armed forces. You are getting a genuine replacement!
all versions of a particular decoration are available for each. Some awards are available in RIBBON only and
are so noted. Decorations are listed alphabetically.
Medals – These are regulation-sized medals.
Anodized Medals (Bright) – Same as above but in a bright gold or silver finish.
