Each state or territory may submit no more than one ANG and one ARNG nomination each year.
VALLEY FORGE CROSS FOR HEROISM
The Valley Forge Cross is presented to members of the National Guard who have distinguished themselves by performing acts of heroism that otherwise might not be recognized due to the National Guard’s peacetime status.
Valley Forge Certificate may be awarded at the state/local level in lieu of the Valley Forge Cross award.
MERITORIOUS SERVICE AWARD
This award was created based upon a perceived need for an additional award that would specifically recognize individuals for significant contributions to the United States Government, the Armed Forces of the United States or NGAUS.
Meritorious Service Certificate may be awarded at the state/local level in lieu of the Meritorious Service Award.
