Air Force Commendation Medal
The U.S. Air Force began issuing its own Air Force Commendation Medal in 1958 with additional awards denoted by oak leaf clusters. Prior to this time, USAF recipients received the Army Commendation Medal. It was not until 1996 that the "V" device for valor was authorized on the Air Force Commendation Medal; prior to 1996, there was not a Valor distinction in effect for the Air Force Commendation Medal. the Air Force Commendation Medal is worth three points under the Air Force promotion system. The oak leaf cluster (OLC) is a metal device formed as a twig of four leaves with three acorns on the stem, 13/32 inch long for the suspension ribbon on a medal, and 5/16 inch long for wear on service ribbon bars, After a soldier or airmen has been awarded a particular decoration or medal, the subsequent award of the same decoration or medal are indicated by the wear of a single bronze oak leaf cluster. With each additional award, another bronze oak leaf cluster is added, for up to a total of four oak leaf clusters which signifies the soldier or airmen has been awarded the decoration or medal five times. If the member receives a sixth award, a silver oak leaf cluster replaces the four bronze oak leaf clusters. If the member receives additional awards, more bronze oak leaf clusters are added until a total of four bronze oak leaf clusters are accumulated to equal 10 awards and another silver oak leaf cluster is added repeating the process, i.e. OLC award number 11 = 2 silver OLC’s & 1 bronze OLC; award number 16 = 3 silver OLC’s & 1 bronze OLC; award number 21 = 4 silver OLC’s & 1 bronze OLC, etc. Oak leaf clusters are authorized to be worn on the following U.S. military awards:

Air Force Good Conduct Medal
2 OAK LEAVES

Between 1947 and 1963, Air Force personnel were issued the Army Good Conduct Medal. For those serving both before and after 1963, both the Army and Air Force Good Conduct Medals could be worn simultaneously on an Air Force uniform. The medal is the same as the Army Good Conduct Medal, except that the ribbons are different for each medal. The Air Force Good Conduct Medal has remained unchanged in appearance since its original design over forty years ago. Additional awards of the Air Force Good Conduct Medal are denoted by oak leaf clusters.

National Defense Service

The National Defense Service Medal is a military service medal of the United States military originally commissioned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Created in 1953, the National Defense Service Medal was intended to be a "blanket campaign medal" awarded to any member of the United States military who served honorably during a designated time period of which a "national emergency" had been declared. As of 2010, with an issuance span of sixty years, the National Defense Service Medal is the oldest service medal still in circulation by the United States armed forces, followed second by the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal which has been active since 1961. Combat and meritorious decorations (such as the Medal of Honor, Silver Star, Purple Heart and Commendation Medals) are older still, but are considered personal decorations and are classified under separate award criteria from service medals.The National Defense Service Medal is awarded to anyone who serves on active duty in the United States military during the above time periods. For service in the Gulf War, members of the military reserve (in good standing) or National Guard were initially awarded the NDSM when called to active duty service, but this was later expanded to include all members of the Reserve or National Guard in good standing on the Reserve Active Status List (or equivalent) during the eligibility period.

Established in 1966, it was awarded to members of United States, Australian, and New Zealand military forces serving six months or more in support of Republic of Vietnam military operations. The medal was the most commonly bestowed foreign military award to United States Armed Forces personnel prior to the Gulf War.The Vietnam Campaign Medal may also be awarded to any service member who, while serving outside the geographical limits of the Republic of Vietnam, provided direct combat support to the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces for a period exceeding six months. This stipulation most often applies to members who performed Vietnam War support from Thailand and Japan. In such cases, a U.S. service member must have been awarded either the Vietnam Service Medal or the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (for service in a Vietnam campaign) to be eligible for the Vietnam Campaign Medal. For those members who were wounded by an enemy force, captured by the enemy in the line of duty, or killed in action, the Vietnam Campaign Medal is automatically awarded regardless of total time served in Vietnam
