TASK FORCE 31 INDIVIDUAL AWARDS









PIKE MEDAL OF HONOR

Criteria:

The Medal of Honor is awarded by the Task Force 31 Commander to a task force member for an act of outstanding bravery or heroism by which the individual has demonstrated in great degree the characteristics of selflessness, personal courage, and devotion to duty at the risk of his/her own life. The individual’s actions substantially contributed to the saving of, or attempted saving of a human life.

This is the highest and most prestigious Task Force award and there must be no margin of doubt or possibility of error in awarding this honor. To justify the decoration, the actions must clearly render the individual conspicuous by an act so outstanding that it clearly distinguishes heroism beyond the call of duty from lesser forms of bravery. It must be the type of deed that, if not done, would not subject the individual to any justified criticism.

A posthumous award may be made to a task force member who has lost his/her life under conditions where the member endangered themselves to save or attempt to save another.
