Award Ribbon Criterion
Medal of Honor

Award recommendation must be made by three seperate witnesses and will be awarded by a board of 451st bomb Group Officers.
Distinguished Service Cross

Action not deserving of a Medal of Honor but exceptionally valorous may be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.
