Haven't seen many if any of the Public Service / Civilian Medals posted on this forum yet. Here is a couple I've added. Another slippery slope I'm afraid :unsure:

1. Defense Logistics Agency - Superior Civilian Service Medal

3. Navy Superior Civilian Service Medal.

The Navy Superior Civilian Service Medal is awarded by the Secretary of the Navy for superior civilian service or contributions which have resulted in exceptional benefit to the Navy. The services are of a lesser degree than that required for the Distinguished Civilian Service Medal.

Darrell - A very interesting thread, yes and a slippery slope if you consider all of the agencies in the US Govt that issue medals. We can't forget the Army Civilian Medals and decorations. Here is the link to them at The U.S. Army Institute of Heraldry website. I believe I have the first four service awards at home and will scan them if anyone is interested: http://www.tioh.hqda.pentagon.mil/Civilian...MedalsDecor.htm

Hi Kevin,

Nice ones. These Civilian / Public Service Medals are very underappreciated, but some of the designs are even better than the valour awards :beer:

Ralph,

Interesting badge. You dont see these every day ...

The Army Civilian Exceptional Service Medal is awarded to United States Army civilian employees who have rendered exceptional services to the Department of the Army. It can be awarded for an act of heroism, involving risk of life, in direct benefit to the government and its personnel. If awarded for heroism, the word "Bravery" appears on the reverse of the medal.

This decoration was authorized in 1960.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
