Unit and Individual Awards and Decorations

As of August 28, 2012

 

 

The images shown here above are just some of the individual service and campaign medals earned by the members of the 545th MP Company from World War II through the present day and are worn proudly by its many serving Military Policemen and women as well as its veterans.

 

 

The ribbons shown here above are of unit awards earned by the 545th Military Police Company throughout its glorious history and are as follows:

 

 

TOP ROW

Presidential Unit Citation (Army), Valorous Unit Citation

 

CENTER ROW

 Meritorious Unit Citation (Army) w/one silver cluster Presidential Citation and Korean Presidential Citation

 

BOTTOM ROW

    Chryssoun Aristion Andrias (Bravery Gold Medal of Greece), Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry w/Palm and Republic of Vietnam Civil Action Medal, First Class w/Palm

 

NOTE:  The Bravery Gold Ribbon of Greece is not authorized for wear by active duty MPs but a streamer is authorized for the unit Guidon (see Guidon Tab in this Web Site).  The Ribbon is authorized for wear by the unit Association Honor Guard.

 

 

Republic of Vietnam Presidential Unit Citation

 

The 545th MP Company was submitted and approved for this above unit award, but the country fell to the communists before the orders were cut and presented formally to the company.

 

The old MP Platoon, HQS Troop, 1st Cavalry Division was also awarded the old style Meritorious Unit Citation in Theater by GEN Douglas Macarthur.  This was a gold wreath sewn on the right lower sleeve of the uniform.  It was only authorized for wear in the Pacific Theater while assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division.

 

 

 

 

U.S. Army Awards and Decorations

 

 

 

Many of us have looked at a photo of a younger generation of MPís and have wondered what all the ribbons were for.  Since many of us have left the Military quite some time ago, this new generation of medals and ribbons is a mystery to most of us.  To help you identify these new awards and decorations, the following links are provided:

US Army Awards, Decorations, Campaign & Service Medals

Korean War Service Medal

Foreign Campaign and Service Medals

Korean Defense Service Medal
