Miniature gilt four-pointed star with graduated rays between the faceted arms, on trapezoidal ribbon bar; the face with a red enamel circular central medallion with the gilt figures of a soldier, a farmer with a shovel and a child in gilt within a white enamel ring inscribed in gilt letters ‘DAN-VU’ above and ‘BOI-TINH’ below; the reverse with a circular central medallion inscribed ‘VIETNAM’ on a laterally-hatched ground within a ring with hatching pointing towards the centre; diameter 16.24mm (0.64 inch); on original ribbon with slide for bar-mounting with maker’s mark ‘L24’ and thus of American manufacture. The Medal was instituted in 1964 to be awarded to Vietnamese military who performed outstanding civic service to the state or who participated in civil service actions of significant benefit. It was also quite widely awarded to United States forces for participation in pacification actions. The medal became obsolete in 1976.
