Buy Military Medals

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) does not issue service medals; that is a function of each military service department. Requests for the issuance or replacement of military service medals, decorations and awards should be directed to the specific branch of the military in which the veteran served. However, for cases involving Air Force and Army personnel (click here for exceptions), the NPRC will verify the awards to which a veteran is entitled and forward the request along with the records verification to the appropriate service department for issuance of the medals. Use the addresses listed below, and mail your request accordingly.

For the Veteran: in general, the military services will work replacement medal requests for the veteran at no cost. This includes family members with the signed authorization of the veteran.

For the Next-of-Kin: the process (and cost) for replacement medals requests differs among the service branches and is dependent upon who is requesting the medal, particularly if the request involves an archival record. Click here for details.

For the General Public: if the service member separated from military service 62 (or more) years ago, the public may purchase a copy of the veteran's Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) to determine the awards due and obtain the medals from a commercial source. If the service member separated less than 62 years ago, the public may request such information from the OMPF via the Freedom of Information Act (see Access to OMPFs by the General Public).

The Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) is used to verify awards to which a veteran may be entitled. OMPFs are accessioned into the National Archives, and become archival, 62 years after the service member's separation from the military. Separation from service is defined as discharge, retirement or death in service based on a rolling date. (To calculate this, take the current year and subtract 62.) Records with a discharge date 62 (or more) years ago are archival and are open to the public. Records with a discharge date less than 62 years ago are non-archival and are maintained under the Federal Records Center program. Non-archival records are subject to access restrictions. As such, the veteran's date of separation (separation is defined as discharge, retirement or death in service) will affect how the request is processed. See below:

The NPRC, upon request, will provide copies of DD-214s (or equivalent) or SF-50s to authorized requesters. These documents may be used to apply for the Certificate. For information on how to obtain a copy of your DD-214 (for military service personnel) or SF-50 (for Federal civilian personnel) see:

The Secretary of a military department, acting through a Board for Correction of Military Records, has authority to change any military record when necessary to correct an error or remove an injustice. A correction board may consider applications for correction of a military record, including a review of a discharge issued by court-martial.

Each of the military services maintains a discharge review board with authority to change, correct or modify discharges or dismissals not issued by a sentence of a general court-martial. The board has no authority to address medical discharges.

We have grouped information, forms and links together based on what your needs are, for example, requirements for new residents, the process for transferring your vehicle, determining inspection requirements, applying for military plates, etc.

We understand being in the military creates special situations when being relocated from one state to another, or from one country to another. Hopefully the tips and guidance we have gathered for you will help to eliminate some of your stress, or even make your relocation a breeze when it comes to your vehicle.

If you order new military plates with a new design or an ISA to replace your existing military plates, a new plate number will be assigned. Disabled Veteran plate numbers will not change if an emblem or an ISA is added. When you receive your new plates, please surrender the old ones to your county tax assessor-collector so they may be destroyed or recycled.

Military Benefits for Military Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses are extended to those applying for a new license or currently licensed as a motor vehicle or salvage dealer, converter, manufacturer, distributor, in-transit operator, lessor, or lease-facilitator. If you are current or former military, or a military spouse, you may qualify for a waiver or reduction in fees, expedited processing, or a waiver of requirements. The table below outlines the qualifications necessary to receive these benefits. For more information about dealer licensing, please visit our Dealers page.

If you are the spouse of an active military member and you currently hold an active motor vehicle or salvage industry license in another state, submit the Military Spouse Exempt form for verification before you apply for a Texas license. You may be eligible to operate as a license holder.

The U.S. Mint produces a variety of national medals to commemorate significant historical events or sites and to honor those whose superior deeds and achievements have enriched U.S. history or the world.

When you think of the U.S. military, you realize there are a lot of pins, medallions and other metal-based items that can adorn a uniform. But have you ever thought about the work that went into making those products? It's a lot of effort that the tiny team at The Institute of Heraldry on Fort Belvoir, Virginia, pulls off flawlessly.

Samples of the finished metal-based products, such as medals and pins, also undergo testing via something called an X-ray spectrometer. It tests the composition of the products to make sure the manufacturers are using the correct metals. For instance, 99% of all insignia the institute creates is made of red brass. That's a composite of 85% copper and 15% zinc. So, when one of those items is run through the X-ray spectrometer, it'll let the experts know if that is, in fact, the material from which the medal is made.

Two other tests metal insignia may undergo are the Shore D durometer and the plating thickness tester. The Shore D durometer is a hardness test for the epoxy, which is the plastic-like material found on items such as pins. All institute-certified manufacturers get their epoxy from the same company, which provides the colors that are certified to match those chosen by the institute. The plating thickness tester is for medals and items finished with nickel or gold. Like the spectrometer, it uses X-rays to make sure there's enough of the intended metal on the product.

Steel Dies The Institute of Heraldry creates steel dies that are used to make various medals and other metal insignia for the Armed Forces and U.S. government organizations.

Then, there are the products at the base military clothing stores and exchange shops as well as checks on random products at the manufacturers. A small team of the institute's experts goes to these locations to do a visual inspection of the products. If they find anything to be suspect, they'll take it back to the institute for more detailed testing using the methods above.
