Here at army surplus world we carry the Full Size Air Medal, the Miniature, the Hat Pin, the Lapel Pin and the Air Medal Ribbon. The air medal is awarded to personnel who, while serving in any capacity in or with the Armed Forces of the United States, shall have distinguished himself/herself by meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight. Awards may be made to recognize single acts of merit or heroism, or for meritorious service.
Note: During World War II, the Army Air Corps and U.S. Army Air Forces employed bronze and silver oak leaf clusters as additional award devices on all decorations including the Air Medal. The same devices were used by the Army until the establishment of the bronze numeral as its unique additional award device for the Air Medal during the Vietnam War.
