Superior Cadet Decoration Award - Superior Junior Cadet Decoration Award

Superior Junior Cadet Decoration Award

There is also a Superior Junior Cadet Decoration Award with similar requirements issued to cadets in the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps and National Defense Cadet Corps. For the JROTC version, the only difference in appearance of the two awards is an inverse of the red and blue colors on the ribbon portion of the medal. Again for the NDCC version, the only design difference is the ribbon portion of the medal. Overlaying a gray background, there is a total of ten vertical red stripes, with five stripes on the left side and five stripes on the right side.

To be considered eligible for this award, an individual must be:

  • A Junior ROTC or NDCC cadet
  • In the top 10 percent of his or her class in Junior ROTC or NDCC academically and in the top 50 percent of his or her class in overall academic standing
  • Recommended by the Senior Army Instructor and principal or head of the appropriate institution

Famous quotes containing the words award, decoration, superior and/or junior:

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    The question mark is alright when it is all alone when it
    is used as a brand on cattle or when it could be used
    in decoration but connected with writing it is
    completely entirely completely uninteresting.... A
    question is a question, anybody can know that a
    question is a question and so why add to it the
    question mark when it is already there when the
    question is already there in the writing.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Even to this day it is easier than it ought to be for me to get a rise out of an American by telling him something about himself which is equally true about every human being on the face of the globe. He at once resents this as a disparagement and an assertion on my part that people in other parts of the globe are not like that, and are loftily superior to such weaknesses.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Never burn bridges. Today’s junior prick, tomorrow’s senior partner.
    Kevin Wade, U.S. screenwriter, and Mike Nichols. Katharine Parker (Sigourney Weaver)
