Decoration Examples

 Air Force Achievement Medal (AFAM) Citation

Outstanding Achievement

AFI 36-2803 Para 5.1

Key Points to Writing
  • PCS/PCA Decorations will be based on EPRs/OPRs
  • Achievement Decorations read like awards, and will need a narrative for justification
  • DO NOT plan on making up mid-tour points in a PCS medal
  • Ask for HELP, the only person looking out for #1 is you
  • The only person looking out for your Airman is YOU!
  • ASK for/WRITE a Mid Tour decoration 
  • WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get
  • Use F7 to spell check. Errors reflect badly on you and your subordinate!

The following Air Force Achievement Medal (AFAM) for outstanding achievement example has been taken from a PDF File.  If needed some location and mission information has been changed to protect myself and the people I have received the package from.  If possible, a little insight will be given if it has been related.

25 FEBRUARY 2006

Airman First Class <FNAME> <MI>. <LNAME> distinguished himself by outstanding achievement while assigned to the ##th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, ##th Maintenance Group, ##th <WING>, <BASE> Air Force Base, <STATE>. Airman <LNAME> was traveling southbound on <STATE> Highway 193 came upon the scene of a single vehicle accident. He immediately stopped and proceeded to top of an embankment to get a better view. Once he realized that the driver was unconscious and still inside the overturned and severely damaged vehicle, he quickly climbed down the embankment to the vehicle. Then he was able to revive the driver and verified that there were no major injuries. Putting his own life at risk, he crawled inside the vehicle, used his body weight to bend the steering wheel that was pinning the driver’s legs, successfully freed the driver from further harm, and assisted the man up the cliff to awaiting rescue personnel. Airman <LNAME>’s singular act of selflessness epitomizes Air Force Core Values.

Colonel, USAF
