About this item
Rare find as this medal was only awarded from 1938 to 1958, 10 years service required in the Naval Reserve.
Obverse, in the center of a bronze medallion 1 1/4 inches in diameter, an eagle with spread wings is shown alight on an anchor resting on a rocky ledge. Behind the eagle are ascending rays of light, and to its left, clouds. The eagle is the American bald eagle and its defiant attitude suggests preparedness and a readiness to serve. The anchor is symbolic of the Navy. The rocky ledge represents land and symbolizes reserve service. The rays in the background refer to dawn and refer to the fact that Naval Reserves are prepared to serve at the first light of any emergency.
Reverse Forming a circle around the edge of a bronze medallion one and a quarter inches in diameter, the words UNITED STATES NAVAL RESERVE, separated at the bottom of the medal by a five-pointed star. In the center, in two lines, the words FAITHFUL SERVICE.
