Estimated market value:
The Homeland Security Distinguished Service Medal was authorized by an Act of Congress on March 1, 2002, to replace the Transportation Distinguished Service Medal. The Medal was initially awarded to members of the United States Coast Guard who served in a position of great responsibility to recognize exceptionally meritorious service provided to the Department of Homeland Security. Meritorious service performed in other activities administered by the Secretary of Homeland Security also qualifies for the award. The award of the Medal was later extended in 2011 to all members of the United States Armed Forces.
A gold star emblem is authorized for wear on the ribbon to denote additional awards of the Medal.
The Homeland Security Distinguished Service Medal is similar in design to the Transportation Distinguished Service Medal.
