Recently, DOD has authorized the wearing of FULL SIZED or MINIATURE medals on civilian suits, or equivalent dress for Women, by honorable discharge and retired military personnel. The choice of wearing full or miniature size medals has been left to the discretion of the individual. Miniature medals may be appropriate when several medals are worn. Medals may be worn on MEMORIAL DAY, ARMED FORCES DAY and any other appropriate occasions. Several members have asked how to obtain replacement for military medals and awards. A written request to the following will do it. National Personnel Records Center, 9700 Page Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63132. Indicate the branch of service which you served in and the medals that you are seeking to replace. Give your full name Navy service number and your social security number. There may be a small charge for replacement. A Xerox copy of your discharge will speed up the order.
