  • The bronze octagonal full size army medal has, as its central feature, a North American bald eagle with raised wings representing the United States. The eagle grasps an ancient Roman fasces symbolizing the State’s lawful authority and conveys the concept that the award is to a soldier from the Government. There are seven stars on the eagle’s left side and six stars and a spray of leaves to its right. The octagonal shape distinguishes the Soldier’s Medal from other decorations. The stars represent the thirteen original colonies that formed the United States. The laurel spray balances the groups of stars and represents achievement. The reverse has a U.S. shield with sprays of laurel and oak leaves representing achievement and strength in front of a scroll. The words, “SOLDIER’S MEDAL” and “FOR VALOR” are inscribed on the reverse.
