We've talked ugliest...now why not best looking?


Recommended Posts


I know that this is an ancient thread, but here is my opinion on some of the nicest:


- Distinguished Service Cross (WWII vintage or older)

- Earlier strikes of the Navy Expeditionary Medal

- WWI U.S. Victory Medal

- DFC (As many others have listed as well)

- The earlier Slot/Crimp Brooch Navy Commendation Medal (Simple, but nice)

- Earlier examples of the Air Force Commendation Medal 

- Medal for Humane Action (Berlin Airlift)

The Air Medal is my absolute favorite. Its best feature, in my opinion, is the compass rose and how the "north" fleur-de-lis is also used to attach the suspension ring. I also like that the ribbon's colors are taken from the branch of service colors of the Army Air Corps.
