If these awards were conceived in a period since the American Revolution, there was no formal or systematic plan.

It is interesting to note that once a medal was awarded, with a responsibility of individuals to the same status. If the coin is tarnished, damaged or lost, the same medal be bought! Although I am sure that this is a very good alternative deserving employees have won awards, and some abuse it now prices that believe they should have received or are impressive. This not only cheaper prices, minimized, to mention an achievement that takes the legal line that. For example, wearing a Medal of Honor fraudulent imposition of a fine of $ 100,000. I’m sure everyone is with me that all this is said and done agree with maybe the biggest satisfaction and pride to serve their country.
