Philippines (Republic): Distinguished Conduct Star. 3rd Type



The Distinguished Conduct Star is the second highest - and very sparingly awarded - bravery decoration that can be bestowed upon personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines for acts of conspicuous gallantry

There have been three designs of the medal in use since 1946. The awards were originally worn as breast badges, but from the 1980's the Distinguished Conduct Star is worn on a neck cravat

The medal is rarely awarded and the most recent awards have been issued to those decorated for acts of conspicuous gallantry combatting ISIS and Al-Qaeda inspired terrorist fighters in the Southern Philippines (Mindanao)

An attractive and rarely seen decoration
