The Legion of Merit Medal is awarded not for heroism, but rather service and achievement while performing duties in a key position of responsibility. It may be presented to foreign personnel, but is not authorized for presentation to civilian personnel.

The Legion of Merit is worn below the Defense Superior Service Medal and above the Distinguished Flying Cross.
There are four degrees of this decoration that are awarded to foreign personnel only (Chief Commander, Commander, Officer and Legionnaire). The first two degrees are comparable in rank to the Distinguished Service Medal and are usually awarded to heads of state and to commanders of armed forces, respectively. The last two degrees are comparable in rank to the award of the Legion of Merit Medal to U.S. service members.
