A member may be awarded several National Society medals more than once: Meritorious Service Medal, War Service Medal, Medal for Heroism, Bronze Good Citizenship Medal, Liberty Medal C.A.R.-SAR Medals of Appreciation, Samuel Adams Congress Planning Medal, Service to Veterans Medal, and the Florence Kendall Award.

Each medal previously listed has its own criteria. Please refer to the specific medal in the Handbook for the number of oak leaf clusters and/or multiple awards permitted.

The color of the oak leaf cluster and the number of clusters indicates the number of times the wearer has received the medal. A bronze oak leaf cluster is worn for each additional medal up to five. If more than five medals are presented, a silver oak leaf cluster should be worn in lieu of each five bronze oak leaf clusters, and a gold oak leaf cluster in lieu of two silver oak leaf clusters. Oak leaf clusters are available in one size only, and may be worn on either full size or miniature medals.

The oak leaf clusters are worn in the middle of the ribbon, horizontally, with the large part of the leaf slightly elevated and pointing to the wearer's left or "sinister" side.

The Liberty Medal has its own system of wearing oak leaf clusters, which should be followed. Also, any multiple awards of state society medals should use the oak leaf cluster system.

Each additional medal must have been presented based on the same criteria as the first presentation; but each additional presentation must reward separate and distinct acts.

In the event that a member has received additional medals of the same kind, he should make use of the oak leaf cluster system. He should not wear two or more medals of the same kind at the same time.
