The SAR ROTC Medal is approved by the United States Army, the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the United States Air Force. Each service has notified its ROTC Units of this approval and has authorized presentation to its cadets or midshipmen.

This award may be presented by the National Society, a state society or a chapter to students enrolled in ROTC programs. The medal endeavors to foster the principle of "citizen-soldier" exemplified by the Minutemen.

Recipients are selected for a high degree of merit with respect to leadership qualities, military bearing and general excellence. The recipients are selected by the Commanding Officer of the ROTC unit, who should be given full latitude in making the selection.

One medal will normally be awarded each year in ROTC 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 ROTC 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 ROTC program as well.

The medal is struck on a circular planchet and on the obverse is depicted a Minuteman holding a rifle, with a plow and the Liberty Bell in the background, and is inscribed, with the letters, "ROTC." The reverse is inscribed "Awarded for Leadership, Soldierly Bearing and Excellence to ." It is suspended from a ribbon of the SAR colors. A ribbon bar in the SAR colors is included and a certificate is available.

The Silver ROTC Medal is presented only to students in a university ROTC unit. No recipient may receive it more than once. Miniature is not available. The medal was authorized in 1933.
