Air Force Achievement Medal (AFAM) Citation
AFI 36-2803 Para 5.1
Key Points to Writing
- PCS/PCA Decorations will be based on EPRs/OPRs
Decorations read like awards, and will need a narrative for justification
- DO NOT plan on making up mid-tour points
in a PCS medal
- Ask for HELP, the only person looking out for #1
- The only person looking out for your Airman is YOU!
- ASK for/WRITE
a Mid Tour decoration
- WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you
- Use F7 to spell check. Errors reflect badly on you and your subordinate!
The following Air Force Achievement Medal (AFAM) for outstanding achievement example has been taken from a
Word Doc. If needed some location and mission information has been changed to protect myself and the
people I have received the package from. If possible, a little insight
will be given if it has been related.

Senior Airman XXXX X. XXXXX distinguished himself by outstanding achievement as
Local Area Networks Journeymen, XXXth Air Communications Squadron, United States
Central Command Air Forces, Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina. During this
period, Senior Airman <LNAME> significantly contributed to the outstanding success
of United States Central Command Air Forces’ efforts in the Global War on

Networking equipment into the Al-Udied Combined Air Operations Center.
Additionally, SrA <LNAME> installed 28,000 feet of Category Five cable and
completed 850 media terminations to command and control computer clients. Senior

faulty Video conferencing system, enabling for Blue Flag 05-2 participants to
conference with six other sites as well as the Secretary of the Air Force. The
distinctive accomplishments of Senior Airman XXXXX reflect credit upon herself
and the United States Air Force.
The only question I have regarding this award is the time frame.
Is it a Outstanding achievement or a meritorious service medal?
