Medals and Awards
Medals can be awarded to Central Aid Agency personnel for exemplary service, outstanding conduct, and for specific instances of bravery and heroism. Medals come in two forms: Citations and Commendations. Citations cite the conduct of a specific event, while Commendations refer to general conduct over an extended period. Personnel can be awarded multiples of the same type of medal, when this occurs it is demonstrated by the wear of appurtenances on the medal ribbon. Medals can be worn as either the full medal, or as an enamel ribbon. When worn, medals and medal ribbons are worn on the wearer's left chest directly below the ID tapes.
