Miniature octagonal bronze medal on laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the Seal of the United States Coast Guard centrally within a rope border; the reverse inscribed ‘FOR HEROISM’; diameter 16.26mm (0.64 inch); on original ribbon mounted with pin for wear. The Medal was instituted Act of Congress on 4 August 1949 to be awarded ‘to any member of the Armed Forces who, while serving in any capacity with the Coast Guard, distinguishes himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. To justify this decoration, the individual must have performed a voluntary act of heroism in the face of great personal danger of such a magnitude that it stands out distinctly above normal expectations’.
