Remote Combat Effects Campaign Medal

Established by then-Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson, the creation of the Remote combat Effects Campaign Medal (RCECM) is part of a continuing effort to recognize U.S. Air Force military members in a non-deployed status who directly participated in a Department of Defense combat operation from a remote location.
The RCECM will be awarded to Airmen serving in remotely piloted aircraft, cyber, space and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance career fields, who create direct combat effects from remote locations and lead to strategic outcomes or the delivery of lethal force. In some circumstances, Airmen from other career fields may be considered for the RCECM, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
QUALIFYING DOD COMBAT OPERATIONS:
Airmen who have received a DoD or Air Force campaign or expeditionary medal or ribbon for the same period of service are not eligible to receive the RCECM.
Service members may be awarded the RCECM for actions completed on or after Sept. 11, 2001, while also serving under the following conditions:
Airmen will wear the first Remote Combat Effects Campaign Medal awarded and will wear a bronze service star for any subsequent medal awarded to recognize each qualifying DOD combat operation in which the Airman participated for one or more days.
The medal bears a bronze color 1 & 1/4 inch metal disc bearing a starburst. The starburst behind the grid-lined sphere conveys power and the ability to remotely effect the battlefield, anywhere in the world. The delta followed by the contrail portrays the remotely piloted aircraft and weapons systems. The Hap Arnold symbol denotes the U.S. Air Force. The reverse bears a circular inscription, "COMBAT EFFECTS CAMPAIGN" above, and "UNITED STATES AIR FORCE" below, and a "Hap Arnold" symbol above a stacked inscription that reads "REMOTE COMBAT SUPPORT". A pair of beveled deltas flank the circular inscription.
The ribbon is predominantly blue, with a wide light blue center stripe flanked on either side by a narrow white stripe. The colors represent the U.S. Air Force.
