"5th Summit of the Americas medal"?  Sounds positively... Waltish.  Awarded for exemplary car park security or...?   Seriously, though, how would one qualify and how many may have been issued?  Enquiring minds wish to know.

Hello Gentlemen, the third medal in the row is Medal for the 50th Anniversary of Independence in 2012.

Some what embarassed by my initial post on the Summit of the Americas  medal, I've looked it up and from what fragmentary information I've found I believe it was awarded to members of the Trinidad and Tobaggo Defence Force who were actively deployed during the 2009 Summit.  As I suspect that many members of the Force are territorial/militia, I'd guess that this would represent their only active deployment for some.

The then commander of the T&TFF, elected a member of Parliament in September this year, was awarded it "for exemplary service during the hosting of the Summit".
