    Hi Members, this is my first post.

    Is any member able to direct me where I can obtain a replica (or new original) of the current "Office of the Secretary of Defence Medal for Exceptional Public Service"? This is the entry level bronze version similar to the "Outstanding" silver and "Distinguished" gold versions, the latter two are illustrated in the Society’s Medal Collectors segment (but the bronze level I’m looking for is not illustrated). The ribbon colours (red/white/blue) are the same for all three, but "Exceptional" bronze version has the wide centre band in WHITE.

    My son was awarded this medal during a tour in Washington as an Exchange Officer from the Ministry of Defence UK and I’m making up my own personal display of Caldwell family medals from his great grandfather in WW1 to date and this is the only medal or replica I now need to complete the project. I’ve tried countless US medal collectors and DoD direct (no reply from the latter) and now I’m stuck.

    Any help or assistance members can suggest or help from an individual member welcome.
    Thanks in advance Graham Caldwell

    I can’t believe a current Federal medal was so hard to find!
