Instiftad år: 1874 Valör: Guld
Ytterligare information:
Established by Congress in 1874 as a non-wearable award, the Gold Lifesaving Medal has undergone four design changes since its inception. The GLM continues to be made of gold; the planchet is 24K, the suspension bar is 21K and all remaining parts are 18K. The Gold Lifesaving medal is awarded by the Dept. of Transportation to both civilians and members of the military who risk their lives to save others from drowning. Because the military has many awards to recognize such heroism, to be awarded the GLM, members of the military usually must be in an off-duty status when they perform the act.
