The Airman’s Medal is a military decoration of the
United States Air Forceand is awarded to those service members who distinguish themselves by heroic actions, usually at the voluntary risk of life, but not involving actual combat.
The Airman’s Medal was first created in
1960and the first recipient of the decoration was Captain John Burger, USAF, who was retroactively awarded the Airman’s Medal for actions performed in 1959.
The U.S. Army equivalent of the Airman’s Medal is the
Soldier's Medal. Between 1947and 1959, U.S. Air Force members were eligible for the Soldier’s Medal since the separate Airman’s Medal had not yet been established. The Navy and Marine Corps Medaland the Coast Guard Medalare also considered to be the equivalent decorations for those services.
