I thought I was well known about US medals, but this one has me stumped.

Who can identify this medal?

Thanks a lot Teamski,

Now I wonder how this ended up in a Dutch medal group.

The group is made in the Dutch Military style, but the medals in this group are leaning more to a civilian than a military guy. The US medal confirm this now.

Another question: How does one rate a Joint Meritorious Civilian Service award?

Thanks in advance,
Herman

Interesting to say the least!  I was trying to figure out how a US medal could be mounted like that and now I know.  ;)
