About this itemGenuine USA made (Vietnamese: Nhân dũng bội tinh) was a medal awarded by the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) during the years of the Vietnam War.
It was awarded, or posthumously awarded, to military personnel of all grades, government officials and civilians who exhibited extreme bravery in risking their lives to rescue other people in distress. The Life Saving Medal was also intended for foreigners who risked their lives to rescue Vietnamese citizens in distress. An example of this was the awarding of the Life Saving Medal to Major Rex Clark, an Australian Army officer, for rescuing a young girl who was drowning in Da Nang harbour.
