A service medal is an award to personnel who participated in designated wars, campaigns, or expeditions, or who have fulfilled specific service requirements in a creditable manner.
Famous quotes containing the word service:
“Barnards greatest war service ... was the continuance of full-scale instruction in the liberal arts ... It was Barnards responsibility to keep alive in the minds of young people the great liberal tradition of the past and the study of philosophy, of history, of Greek.”
—Virginia Crocheron Gildersleeve (18771965)
