The Korea Service Medal (KSM) is a military service medal of the North American Armed Forces that was first created in 2016 when it was signed into law by Emperor William. The bill to create the proposal was introduced and championed by Field marshal Friedrich Albrecht. Two designs for the medal were proposed. Both designs were done by College of Arms.
