To honor and protect the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes, we have protected this award against Stolen Valor. To purchase this medal for yourself or a family member's shadow box, or display case, we require a DD-214 or other valid proof that this medal was honorably awarded.

To justify an award of the Distinguished Service Medal, exceptional performance of duty, clearly above that normally expected, which has contributed materially to the success of a major command or project, is required. In general, the Coast Guard Distinguished Service Medal is awarded only to those officers in principal commands whose service is such as to justify the award.
