The Micronational War on Terrorism Service Medal (MWOTM) was a military service medal of the New European Armed Forces that was created in 2012 when it was signed into law by the Berg government on 17 November 2012. The award recognizes those military service members who have performed service in the Micronational War on Terror from 28 June 2009 to 01 May 2013.
Criteria[edit | edit source]
To receive the Micronational War on Terrorism Service Medal, a military service member must perform duty in a designated anti-terrorism operation for a period of either 30 consecutive or 60 non-consecutive days of duty. For those who were deployed to an active combat zone, engaged in combat or wounded in the line of duty the time requirement is waived. This medal is awarded to individuals with micronational activities who are currently or have participated in operations, for which the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal is authorized, include the active military campaigns of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Noble Eagle, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The medal has the form of a Greek cross with the arms enameled white. The upper arm is surmounted by a New European crown. The round central shield of the obverse bears the coat of arms of Order of Santiago. The award is worn on a ribbon on the left side of chest.
Service and battle stars[edit | edit source]
Only one award of this medal may be authorized for any individual, therefore, no service stars are prescribed. Although qualifying circumstances would be extremely rare, battle stars may be applicable for personnel who were engaged in actual combat against the enemy involving grave danger of death or serious bodily injury.
