  • The State Distinguished Service Medal – This award, authorized in 1998, is the highest Medal that can be awarded by a State Society President during each year of his term of office. It is presented to a Compatriot for distinguished service rendered to the State Society on the state level during a State Society’s President’s term of office. The Medal is presented at the State Society annual meeting at the conclusion of the President’s term of office.  A State President may present only one Medal of Distinguished Service during each year of his tenure as State Society President. A Compatriot may receive this medal only once from a State Society.
