The Legion Of Merit Medal
legion of merit medal

The Legion of Merit award was established in 1942. Its original purpose was to honor foreign military personnel and to recognize members of the United States Armed Forces for a wide variety of contributions to the American war effort. Beginning in 1957, the Legion of Merit medal was expanded to include peacetime service. After the Vietnam war, it was also awarded to certain officer ranks upon their retirement. Despite the numerous changes in criteria, this award ranks as the nation’s second highest peacetime award.
