Purpose of Medals

Medals have a very long existence in the history of the 29th Infantry Division. Please note, while many medals have realistic roots, not all medals will be 100% accurate, based on our needs as a unit. Medals are intended to serve as positive reinforcement to show praise for a particular accomplishment or action. They are selective in nature in order to maintain an integrity and purpose. It may be important to consider who has been awarded a medal in the past when considering to award a medal to a soldier under your command.
