Section VI: Naval Medals

The Vast Empire, like any other military organization, needs to reward members for outstanding performance. Promotion is not always a practical method of doing so, so to that end the Vast Empire Navy has developed a series of medals designed to reward outstanding service, bravery, and exemplary behavior. Please note that the Naval Commander in Chief has the right to bestow any and all awards he feels necessary, as well as to review and revoke awards he feels are unrightfully awarded.

Any Medal Award recommendations must be sent to the appropriate superior officer, Naval Executive Officer, and Naval Commander in Chief. The Form MUST include the ID Line designation of the recommended Member or it will not be included in the Fleet Medal Board, that is maintained by the Naval Executive Officer.
