    Commander - Equivalent of a U.S. military Chief of Staff or higher position but not to Chief of State.

    Officer Class - General or Flag Officer below the equivalent of a U.S. military Chief of Staff; also a Colonel or equivalent rank for service in assignments equivalent to those normally held by a General or Flag Officer in U.S. military service or Military Attaches.

    Legionnaire - All recipients not included above.

    The degrees and the design of the decoration were clearly influenced by the French Legion d' Honnuer.ORIGINAL U.S. LEGION OF MERIT CHIEF COMMANDER IN PRESENTATION CASE
