Air Force Reserve Forces Meritorious Service Medal
This award was originally established as a ribbon bar by the Secretary of the Air Force on April 1, 1964 and was amended on May 1, 1973 when the medal was created. It is awarded for exemplary behavior, efficiency and fidelity during a four-year continuous period while serving in an enlisted status in the US Air Reserve Forces, (Air Force Reserve) to 30 June 1972. From 1 July 1972 and afterwards, the length of service requirement is 3 continuous years of service. Award individuals who accrue at least 1 year but less than 3 years toward award of the medal and terminate their enlisted Reservce status as a commissioned or warrant officer the medal regardless of the beginning eligibility date. Creditable service ends when called to active duty. A period of more than 24 hours between reserve enlistments counts as a break in service. Credit must begin anew after the break. An active duty period is not a break in service. Do not credit service performed in the other US Armed Forces Reserve components. When determining service computation, exclude service as a commissioned officer.
