Although unofficial and usually struck by private mints or associations, commemorative medals provide a very tangible memento to honor all veterans and families for their service and sacrifice. The first commemorative medals were awarded shortly after the Continental Congress was formed, but only until the 20th Century did the United States issue military service medals.

Medals of America has now minted the newest commemorative medal in a step forward to recognize one of the greatest deeds to cap off a military service. By completion of honorable service, individuals have set themselves apart to military and nonmilitary personnel as leaders who often did things the difficulty way to get it right and to not deviate from the principles set forth in the oath they took to serve in the United States Armed Forces. This commemorative medal and ribbon honors all of those individuals of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines who have earned their Honorable Discharge.

      Since it’s a COMMEMORATIVE medal, I’d assume that ANYONE can “get” (ie, buy) it.

      However, to more directly answer your question: an “Honorable Discharge” is the top separation category and is identified by the issuance of a form “DD214” (for the Navy, it’s a “DD214N” … other branches have their letter designation following the “4”). So, no, “admin under honorable” is NOT an “Honorable Discharge”.

    Love it, but when it will come in miniature form? I have a shadow case with my mini medals, and I think will show more of my “story”.
