MILITARY SERVICE MEDALS ARE NOW AVAIALBE TO ALL PALMYRA RESIDENTS WHO SERVED IN THE MILITARY!

The Borough is proud to recognize and honor our brave Service men and women with a new Military Service Medal minted especially for Veterans who are residents of Palmyra!

If you’ve already provided your personal information and discharge/separation papers (DD-214 or WD-AGO 53-55) to the Palmyra War Memorial Committee – or if your name already appears on our Veterans monuments — simply request your Military Service Medal by providing your name and contact information via email to militaryservicemedal@boroughofpalmyra.com or by calling Marie at (856) 829-6100 ext. 130.

For new requests, please apply by completing the Application Form (Microsoft Word version)  (fillable PDF version) and mailing to:

Borough of Palmyra
Military Service Medal
20 W. Broad St.
Palmyra, NJ 08065

You must enclose a copy of your DD-214 or WD-AGO 53-55 showing an honorable discharge with the Application. Please redact your SSN and any other private information that may appear on your discharge/separation papers however.

Please note: if your name appears on our Veterans monuments, we already have your information and discharge papers and there is no need to provide it again – simply request your Military Service Medal by email or phone.

ALL MILITARY SERVICE MEDALS WILL BE PERSONALLY PRESENTED AND WILL NOT BE MAILED.

Military Service Medals will also be awarded posthumously to honor those Palmyra residents who made the ultimate sacrifice. Surviving next-of-kin of those Service members who were killed in action may also apply for a Military Service Medal in the same manner as described above. Simply complete the Application Form or contact us via email or by phone if we already have the Veterans information. At this time Military Service Medals will only be presented to those deceased veterans who were killed in action.
