Welcome to the Orders and Medals Society of America (OMSA) Website and the world of orders, medals and decorations!

Please navigate around our OMSA Website and Forums for interesting information on this fascinating hobby of ours!

For those that do not know us, OMSA has a current membership of more than 1,500 members with members in every state and some twenty-five foreign countries. Membership is available by application under terms specified in the Society’s Constitution and By-Laws.

The purpose of OMSA is to foster and promote the educational development of interested parties though the research, recording and dissemination of information and knowledge of orders, decorations medals and other honors, past and present, military and civil, of the world community of nations.

At the same time, our members strive to honor the memory and the accomplishments of the individuals who earned the awards, and to promote the appreciation and preservation of these artifacts for future generations. In no manner does OMSA condone the misuse of any such orders or medals of merit of any nation, or the fraudulent representation thereof.
