The Airman’s Medal is a individual decoration of the United States Air Force. The medal was established on 6 July 1960 and is awarded to those service members or those of a friendly nation who, while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Air Force, distinguish themselves by a heroic act, usually at the voluntary risk of his or her life not involving actual combat. The saving of a life or the success of the voluntary heroic act is not essential. 

The Airman’s Medal was authorized on 10 August 1956 to replace the U.S. Army's Soldier's Medal which was also awarded to qualifying Air Force personnel since 26 September 1947. According to Air Force Instruction 36-2803, The Secretary of the Air Force, Personnel Council approves or disapproves recommendations for Airman's Medals requiring SAF approval and determines upon approval, entitlement to 10 percent increase in retirement pay for the Airman's Medal when awarded to enlisted members for extraordinary heroism.
