Decoration Examples

 Air Force Achievement Medal (AFAM) Citation

Outstanding Achievement

AFI 36-2803 Para 5.1

Key Points to Writing
  • PCS/PCA Decorations will be based on EPRs/OPRs
  • Achievement 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 is you
  • 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 get
  • 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.

 The only question I have regarding this award is the time frame.  Is it a Outstanding achievement or a meritorious service medal?
