Medals, Ribbons and Certificates

Cadet Award Packages

Each year, each detachment, squadron or unit may select one outstanding cadet of the year. The Air Force Association (AFA) is proud to support these accomplished cadets with an award package containing a medal, ribbon and certificate. Once you have received an award package, please fill out the Award Presentation Feedback Form.


AFA will automatically send an award package to each AFROTC detachment and each AFJROTC unit based on a data file received from AFROTC HQ. Packages are mailed in March.

Civil Air Patrol Squadron Cadets:

The squadron commander may request an award package during the December – January time-frame. To review Cadet Medal criteria and/or to request an award package, click HERE for a document that was prepared by CAP HQ.
