Miniature bronze medal in the form of a six-pointed short-armed star imposed on a similar star, its points between the arms of the upper star, to form a two-level twelve-pointed star, with laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with an American eagle, wings spread, an escutcheon on its breast with thirteen pales and a chief, three arrows in its claws, from the Seal of the Secretary of Defense of the United States of America, under whose authority the medal is awarded; the reverse with a circular central inscription ‘JOINT SERVICE • ACHIEVEMENT AWARD’; diameter 18.01mm (0.71 inch); on original ribbon mounted for bar wear. The Medal was instituted on 3 August 1983 to be awarded in the name of the Secretary of Defense to members of the Armed Forces below the rank of colonel (captain in the Navy) who, ‘while assigned to a joint activity, distinguish themselves by outstanding achievement or meritorious service, but not to the degree that would warrant award of the Joint Service Commendation Medal’. The Medal is worn after Commendation Medals but before all other Achievement Medals.
