The Air Force Distinguished Service Medal was authorized by Congress on July 6, 1960; it evolved from the Army Distinguished Service Medal authorized in 1918. The medal is awarded for exceptionally meritorious service to the U.S. in a duty of great responsibility; the term “great responsibility” denotes the success of a major operation or program attributed to the proper exercise of authority and judgement.

The medal is a blue stone centered within 13 gold rays, each separated by 13 white stars. The recipient’s name may be engraved on the reverse of the medal.
