Precedence: 29
Year Authorized: 1965
Presented By: National Society, State Society or Chapter
Approved By: NSSAR Executive Committee, State Society or Chapter (based on conferring authority)

Description: The medal is bronze in color, suspended from a ribbon of the SAR colors. The obverse depicts a Minuteman holding a rifle, with a plow and the Liberty Bell in the background, and is inscribed “ROTC.” The reverse is inscribed “Awarded for Leadership, Soldierly Bearing and Excellence to __________.” A ribbon bar in the SAR colors is included and a certificate is available. Miniature is not available.

Summary: The National Society, a state society or a chapter, may present this award only to students enrolled in a high school or secondary school JROTC program.

Qualifications: The medal endeavors to foster the principle of “citizen-soldier” exemplified by the Minutemen and recipients should be selected by the commanding officer of the ROTC unit based on their leadership qualities, military bearing and general excellence. Although commanding officers should be given full latitude in making the selection, the following specific criteria must be met:
1. The cadet must be currently enrolled in the JROTC Program;
2. The cadet should be a third-year cadet in a four year program or a second-year cadet in a three year program;
3. The cadet must be in the top 10% of his or her JROTC class;
4. The cadet must be in the top 25% of his or her overall class; and
5. The cadet may not have received the Bronze ROTC Medal previously from the Sons of the American Revolution.

Limitations on Presentation: One medal will normally be awarded each year in JROTC units with fewer than 500 cadets or midshipmen. For larger units, one medal may be presented for each 500 students enrolled in the unit. Moreover, where a school has more than one JROTC unit, each unit is counted separately. It is desirable to have the medal on display with its ribbon bar in a trophy case at each school where it is presented. This will serve as an incentive to the students and publicize the SAR JROTC program as well.

Special Note Regarding the US Navy Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC): Sea Cadets are no longer eligible to receive the SAR Bronze Medal. The NSCC should be supported by recognizing the Outstanding NSCC Cadet with the Bronze Good Citizenship Medal. A ribbon bar for the Bronze Good Citizenship Medal is available from Merchandise specifically for use for the Sea Cadets.

Subsequent Presentation NOT Authorized: A cadet may receive this medal only once. Oak leaf clusters or other ribbon attachments are not authorized.
