District Roger Sherman Medal

Summary:  Authorized in 2013, the District Roger Sherman Medal may be awarded by the incumbent Vice Presidents General to a compatriot in recognition of, and in appreciation for, outstanding services rendered to a District. The medal is presented to a compatriot for significant service which lacks the requirements for the Meritorious Service Medal. This Medal is named after Roger Sherman (1721-1793), who was a founding father, and the only person to sign all four Congressional papers of the United States: the Continental Association, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.  The medal is antique silver in color and bears on the obverse a portrait of Roger Sherman, with the inscription “Roger Sherman Medal.” The reverse of the medal is inscribed “In Appreciation for Service to the SAR.” It is suspended from a chest ribbon of blue, white and red.

Subsequent Presentation: Oak leaf clusters are authorized. To be awarded an oak leaf cluster, a Compatriot would have to provide subsequent service to the Association satisfying the above requirements.
