Silver Medallion

In 1986, the United States Cavalry & Armor Association introduced an awards program to honor the very best of America's tankers and cavalry troopers. The Association reports that our leaders have inducted over 10,000 deserving members of the Armor and Cavalry community into the prestigious Order of St George, the patron saint of Armor and cavalry.

The Silver Medallion 

        • The nominee, nominator, and approving authority must be a member in good standing of the US Cavalry & Armor Association. 
        • Meet the criterion of the Bronze Medallion.
        • Have an approved retirement date or DA orders permanently reassigning the nominee to other than armor or cavalry duties. 
        • The approving authority is the O6 level commander of an ABCT, IBCT or SBCT, if not in a brigade the approving authority is an AOC O6, if MTOE does not support then an OTA O6 will suffice.
