Army Commendation Medal - The ARCOM is awarded to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who, while serving in any capacity with the Army after 6 December 1941, distinguishes himself or herself by heroism, meritorious achievement or meritorious service. I received two ARCOM's during my military service, one for my performance as Headquarters Company Commander in base camp waiting to go on thirty days leave between tours in Vietnam, and a second while working as Assistant G-3 for the Directorate of Plans and Training with the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile) at Ft. Campbell Kentucky after returning from Vietnam. Both my ARCOM's were for meritorious service.
