Decoration Examples

 Air Force Commendation Medal (AFCM) Citation

Meritorious Service

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 Commendation Medal (AFCM) for meritorious service example has been taken from a Word Doc.  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.

Copied from MS Word:



9 JUNE 2003 TO 31 AUGUST 2006

Staff Sergeant <FNAME> <MI>. <LNAME> distinguished himself by meritorious service as an Electrical Power Production Craftsman, 2d Civil Engineer Squadron, 2d Mission Support Group, 2d Bomb Wing, Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana. During this period, Sergeant McClain created barrier arresting kit maintenance action sheets to expedite scheduled inspections reduced total tasks by 20 percent. He trained 51 fire fighters on post-arresting procedures to support quarterly AIR WARRIOR and AIR ADVERSARY exercises, as well as the annual base open house. Additionally, Sergeant <LNAME> used his expert technical knowledge to solve a 7-month power problem for the 43 million dollar deployable nuclear shelters located at three Air Combat Command bases. After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the gulf coast region, he led the installation of two prime power generators. The Federal Emergency Management Agency was able to deliver 18 million pounds of ice and distribute 35 million gallons of water to the devastated areas along the Gulf Coast, in which Barksdale was recognized as the number one relief hub for recovery. Furthermore, Sergeant <LNAME> superb leadership greatly contributed to the squadron receiving an “Excellent” facilities rating during the 2005 Air Combat Command Nuclear Surety Inspection. The squadron also won the 2005 Air Combat Command Outstanding Operations Flight and was selected as the Air Force runner up. Sergeant McClain’s outstanding contributions to the mission and to the community were recognized by his selection as 2d Civil Engineer Squadron 2005 Noncommissioned Officer of the year. The distinctive accomplishments of Sergeant <LNAME> reflect credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
