The Navy Cross Medal (NC) is the second highest decoration of the United States Military and it is the highest presented by the Department of the Navy. It is meant to recognize any member of the Armed Forces who, while serving in active combat with members of the Navy, Marine corps or Coast Guard, has performed an exceedingly heroic act in the face of great personal danger that did not warrant a Medal of Honor. The action must have taken place under one of the following circumstances: While serving in active combat against enemy forces, while participating in a military operation against armed enemy forces, or while serving in armed conflict alongside allied forces against an opposing force when the United States is not the aggressor.
The legacy of the U.S. Armed Forces veterans is highly protected and it is essential to the mission of USAMM. On occasion, orders are placed by customers for what we deem to be notably important and sacred awards. These awards are solely granted to military personnel for exceptional valor and heroism in combat and fall just short of the Medal of Honor. These awards are the following:
1. Army Distinguished Service Cross
2. Air Force Cross
3. Navy Cross
It is vital that we protect the legacy of these awards and their recipients.
While these items are available to order through the website, we have a formal verification process that must take place before the awards are shipped. We also reserve the right to not ship them at all if proper verification cannot be provided. We take it as our responsibility to highly scrutinize any orders placed in our system for these particular awards before shipment. We have an investigative process that consists of searching national databases that list legitimate recipients. Not appearing in those databases will require submission of an official DD-214 or similar official paperwork authenticating the individual's receipt of the award.
