This medal is a miniature medal only.

Precedence: 42
Year Authorized: 1998
Presented By: District Vice President General, State President, or by the District or State Color Guard Commander (as appropriate). Under special circumstances, the President General or the National Color Guard Commander may present this award.
Approved By: State or District Color Guard Commander and National Color Guard Commander

Summary: The Silver Color Guard Medal is for service at the District and National levels. The medal is awarded for at least three years of service at the applicable level. The three years may be broken, not continuous. Award of each medal may be for retroactive service, so that any living compatriot may receive it, even if he cannot march anymore. An SAR Color Guardsman must have the Bronze Color Guard Medal before he can be awarded the Silver Color Guard Medal.

Special Application Required: SAR Color Guardsmen who believe they qualify for the Silver Color Guard Medal must complete the appropriate form, setting forth their qualifications. This form is available on the SAR website, and must be submitted to the State or District Color Guard Commander for review and recommendation, and to the National Color Guard Commander for final authorization to award the Silver Color Guard Medal.

Qualifying Events: The SAR National Congress and semi-annual Leadership Meetings are National events, and Color Guardsmen are strongly encouraged to participate in them. Other qualifying events which may be substituted for National Congresses and Leadership Meetings shall include:
 An historic commemoration recognized by the NSSAR Historic Sites and Celebrations Committee, e.g. Point Pleasant, the Cowpens, Yorktown, etc.;
 An Annual State Meeting at which the President General is present;
 An Annual District Meeting or Annual District Conference;
 Any National or District event at which the President General is present;
 Any event specifically determined by the National Color Guard Committee to be a qualifying event, including Washington’s Birthday Parade in Laredo, Texas, and the George Washington Massing of the Colors in Los Angeles, California. (See National Color Guard Events under MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION at the back of the Color Guard Handbook.)
 Other events may be determined by the National Color Guard Committee to be qualifying events on a case-by-case basis.

Qualifications: Each State Society shall determine for itself whether to employ one of the following systems for earning the Silver Color Guard Medal. The first system is based on points; the second system is based on the number of events in which a Guardsman participates.

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